List Of Band Combinations For Sentinel 2


#1

Hi,

Is there a list of band combinations for Sentinel 2 available?

I am looking for something similar to the list below of Landsat 8 band combinations.

I have looked in the user guide and tutorial and can’t see any list.

Many thanks
Marc

Landsat 8 band combinations :
Natural Color 4 3 2
False Color (urban) 7 6 4
Color Infrared (vegetation) 5 4 3
Agriculture 6 5 2
Atmospheric Penetration 7 6 5
Healthy Vegetation 5 6 2
Land/Water 5 6 4
Natural With Atmospheric Removal 7 5 3
Shortwave Infrared 7 5 4
Vegetation Analysis 6 5 4


Features identification in image

I will provide you spectral wavelength. The interpretation of band combination is yours to define regarding the application. You can follow the Landsat 8 band if the wavelength is the corresponding one.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for your assistance

When you open an RGB composite from a S2 product, you are proposed with two choices : natural colors (4-3-2) and false color infrared (8-4-3). We may add more combinations to match some L8 combinations when this makes sense.

Also very useful to adopt common L8/L7 band combinations:

Hello @Suprd ,

The link you provided to the {PSD} is to a previous version. The curent release is 14.2. There are some minor amendments in the increment:

  • Table 4-9 has been updated for new management of Complete Single Tile inside Query_options tag.
  • All references to the land/water mask have been removed

The PSD can be found in the Document Library at https://sentinel.esa.int/web/sentinel/user-guides/sentinel-2-msi/document-library

but these are band combinations of Landsat 8 what are the band combinations for sentinel 2

They are just two posts above yours.

Since it wasn’t mentioned yet:

In the “Index DataBase” you find over 200 indices related to Sentinel-2:

@neteler Could you please tell me what are the letters a, b, y etc. on some indices’ formula?

Thank you in advance

Edit: Never mind, I have found it, for those who don’t know, just click at the index link and there is a row for the variables
