These pictures are based on an L2D product and illustrate the region surrounding Palermo (Sicily) in February 2022, as captured by the PRISMA hyperspectral satellite of ASI. The image on the left represents a band in the visible part of the spectrum (near the red), displaying the port of Palermo, a significant passenger port in the Mediterranean, and the hills that encircle the primary urban complex. On the other hand, the image on the right represents a band in the shortwave infrared, which is more sensitive to the presence of high and thin clouds that obscure the ground. The accompanying animation displays all the PRISMA bands, from visible to shortwave infrared, where brightness is proportional to the intensity of the sensed radiation.
