Simulated Sentinel-2 colour composite images using the
red/green/blue bands (above) and near-infrared/red green
Sentinel-2 will carry a multispectral instrument that uses
13 spectral bands from the visible and near-infrared to the
shortwave infrared to reveal different features of the
landscape. The mission provides enhanced continuity for
Spot and Landsat, with narrower bands to identify features
better and additional red bands to assess vegetation.
