These two satellite images are from NOAA AVHRR, but I do not know which bands or channels exactly both images represent.

Can you tell me the band or channels that are involved?

  • For the band numbers, see for example noaasis.noaa.gov/NOAASIS/ml/avhrr.html – markusN Dec 30 '16 at 17:14

  • Probably - you will need to check the metadata to understand what the band numbers refer to in your case. – markusN Dec 30 '16 at 21:11
  • If you don't have metadata on the source image with the band number, could you provide more information like the date of acquisition and a print screen of the other bands ? – radouxju Jan 2 '17 at 11:43
