Enhancement Descriptions:

AVN
Aviation color enhancement
BD
Dvorak enhancement - used for Tropical Classifications with the Dvorak Technique
FT
Funktop enhancement - developed by Ted Funk for assistance with Precipitation analysis
IR2
Channel 2 Infrared imagery - Shortwave, sometimes considered "night visible"
IR4
Unenhanced Channel 4 Infrared Imagery
JSL
JSL2 enhancement - developed by Jim Lynch for use with tropical classifications
RB
Rainbow enhancement curve - pretty color enhancement
RGB
Combination of Visible and IR using a three channel technique to make features stand out
VIS
Unenhanced Visible imagery that transitions to IR2 overnight.
WV
Water Vapor, IR Channel 3 with color enhancement
