About the Enhancements

MCIR (Map Colour Infrared): This enhancement colours the NOAA sensor 4 IR image according to the map, colouring the land green and the sea blue. Higher clouds appear white and lower clouds gray. Darker colours on land and sea indicate warmer regions.
MCIR-precip (Map Colour Infrared with Precipitation): This enhancement produces an interpretative colour image showing areas of likely precipitation after deriving cloud temperatures from the NOAA sensor 4 IR image. The likelihood and intensity of precipitation increases as the cloud colours turn from green to yellow, yellow to orange, orange to red, red to black and black to white.
Contrast Enhancement: This enhancement is performed on the NOAA channel B image by setting darker pixels to black colour and lighter pixels to white colour. It produces a black and white image showing areas of dense clouds as pronounced white, whereas areas with thin and sparse clouds are shown as subtle white.
Thermal: This enhancement produces an interpretative colour image using temperatures derived from the NOAA sensor 4 (thermal infrared) image. It covers full range of temperatures from very cold cloud tops to hot deserts and provides a helpful way of visualizing cloud temperatures.
