The Sentinel program is composed of two satellites (Sentinel 2A, 2B) and was developed to monitor land surface changes in vegetation, the environment, and land cover. Sentinel-2 spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions allow for imagery to be processed at sufficient spatial and temporal detail that is optimal for field scale land surface monitoring, management, and research. Sentinel-2 datasets are available for Sentinel 2A, 2B, and composite of 2A/2B using top of atmosphere or at surface reflectance data.
True Color composites provide images of the land’s surface in a color scheme similar to how the human eye would perceive the land’s surface, i.e vegetation is green, water is dark blue, and soil is brown. This product is useful to visually inspect an image for clouds, snow, crop extent, or to obtain a general understanding of what features are in the image.
True Color images are composed of three bands Red, Green, and Blue all used in their respective color channels.
Red: 0.6645 μm (S2A) / 0.665 μm (S2B)
Green: 0.560 μm (S2A) / 0.559 μm (S2B)
Blue: 0.496.6 μm (S2A) / 0.492.1 μm (S2B)
