Thanks John - this looks very much like the glossy brochure we were given at
Leicester. I suppose I was hoping for some more technical advice - may be what
I am looking for should come from the meteorologists rather than EUMETSAT.
Best wishes

As you know MSG satellites will observe the Earth in 12 spectral channels.
Each channel has the ability to detect/show various features.
If you go to the EUMETSAT website and look for document EUM BR 11 -
Applications of Meteosat Second Generation - a very informative and
document - page 7 details the various channels that MSG senses in and gives a

description of what the channels 'show.'
