a narrow range of the electromagnetic spectrum.
a data set collected by the sensor with information from discrete portions of the electromagnetic spectrum
A specific wavelength region in the electromagnetic spectrum. For example: the visible spectrum is within a wavelength region (or spectral band) ranging from 0.4 to 0.7 µm.
The wavelength in which a scanning instrument measures data; for example, band 4 for the GOES-8 imager is 10.7 microns (infrared).
A narrow set of wavelengths scanned by a sensor. The "blue band" represents a group of wavelengths that all appear "blue."
is a segment of wavelengths within the electromagnetic spectrum.
An interval in the electromagnetic spectrum defined by two bounding wavelengths.
A specific range of wavelengths or light, from a minimum to a maximum, often named after a central value. The value of 633 nanometers is visible light, while 900 nanometers represents infrared light. Spectral band B633 includes those wavelengths (plus or minus 5 percent) of the 633 nanometer peak. Spectral band B900 includes those wavelengths (plus or minus 10 percent) of the 900 nanometer peak. The spectral band or scanning device is generally listed in bar code specifications
