[McIDAS #GBO-964406]: Fwd: IR color table



Hi Carol,

OK. Out of curiosity, which "current enhancement" are you referring to?

re: which satellite and band are you wanting to use?*
> GOES-16 channel 14

Interesting.  I typically look at/use the 10.3 um/Channel 13 band, not
the 11.2 um/Channel 14 band.

re: are you wanting a color enhancement, or a gray scale one?*
> I would prefer color.

I figured as much.

This looks nice.  Can you send it to me?  I'll add it to the Unidata
McIDAS-X distribution.

re:

Yes.  The other thing you could do is to list out the enhancement using
EU LIST, figure out what the brightness range that maps to the temperature
range you are interested in, and make a new enhancement using the new
brightness values using EU MAKE.  There are lots of ways of accomplishing
the same thing in McIDAS.

Very good.

Cheers,

Tom
