    The imagery is very accurate, and at the finest zoom levels (19 or 20), you will be able to perform area calculation with great precision. The location information in Google maps would definitely be more accurate than trying to get readings using a handheld GPS device (there are some app out there that let you walk around a perimeter setting waypoints, and then calculating the internal area.

    Therefore, ceiling heights cannot be directly related to what is seen in satellite imagery. At Z RKS was reporting a ceiling of feet and a visibility of miles. Again try to use the 11um, seen in Figure 5, to determine the areal extent of the low cloud/fog that is present at RKS. Earth and other mapping tools.

Get this from a library. Automated mesoscale winds determined from satellite imagery: final report. [United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;].

Winds are estimated from the automated satellite winds algorithm developed at the Cooperative Instutute of Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Sequences of three GOES images ( microns), separated by 30 minutes, are used to compute winds. The National Weather Service Forecast Office in Miami, FL, is your source for the most complete weather forecast and weather related information on the web.

Automated Detection of Clouds in Satellite Imagery 3 thresholds for various spectral tests. In more robust algorithms, spatially and temporally varying thresholds, which better capture local atmospheric and surface effects, are used to improve their performance and File Size: KB.

Thompson, Francis M. Monaldo, and Nathaniel S. Winstead In fact, our wind-map generation procedure has been automated so that high-resolution wind maps can be obtained from a SAR image within about 30 satellite SAR imagery; in particular that. Figure 1. Principles of Mesoscale Wind Modeling using the KAMM model7 In order to build the surface model, digital terrain data (i.e.

elevation data) are obtained from satellite (remote sensing e.g. SRTM) data, which are converted into a description of the geometry of each surface cell. Likewise land-use data, which enables the modeler toFile Size: 1MB. MCC stands for Mesoscale Convective Complex. An MCC is a grouping of storms that is defined by characteristics on infrared satellite imagery.

They bring a significant bulk of precipitation events that occur across the eastern United States, especially over the plains, southeast U.S. and midwest. Meteorological satellite (METSAT) imagery is more advantageous than synoptic reports because it.

The size and shape of a cumulonimbus cloud's anvil cirrus are determined by the. The mesoscale low-level convergence boundary created by the cooler, moister air moving inland over warmer land during the day is known as. Many automated cloud detection techniques develop sophisticated tests using a combination of visible and infrared channels to determine the presence of clouds in both day and night imagery.

Visible channels are quite effective in detecting clouds during the day, as long as test thresholds properly account for variations in surface features and. Mesoscale eddy detection in satellite imagery of the oceans using the Radon transform Article in Progress In Oceanography September with Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Satellite Orbits Geostationary Satellite The geostationary satellite orbits in line with the earth’s rotation, so remains over the same spot on the earth.

It is positioned at approximat km above the equator. It conducts ongoing observation over a large fixed area (1/3 of the Earth). The Interactive Mesoscale Initialisation (IMI) allows a forecaster to monitor the use of surface observations, satellite and radar imagery in the production of a set of key analyses of surface variables and the cloud distribution.

Conceptual models are then used to make the remaining model fields consistent with these : B. Wright, B. Golding. Determination from satellite imagery: For the purpose of atmospheric corrections, the path radiance and the corresponding aerosol optical thickness can be derived from radiances detected by the satellite over a dark surface.

Examples include many land surfaces in the blue spectrum, dense dark vegetation in the visible channels (Kaufman andFile Size: 4MB.

Its main component is the NCEP/EMC Gridpoint Statistical Interpolation (GSI) system applied in two-dimensional variational mode to assimilate conventional and satellite-derived observations. Satellite Winds. Overview. The idea of using successive satellite observations of clouds to determine wind direction and speed was pioneered by Professor Suomi of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

This module provides an explanation of how this is accomplished. While the concept is simple, the procedure is rather complex. Automatic Classification of Aerial Imagery Although most of the above mentioned studies focused on satellite imagery, Analysis of automated mesoscale cloud winds yield an estimated.

Other Contributors: Dolores Kiessling (COMET), Scott Bachmeier (CIMSS), Tony Mostek (NWS OCWWS), Tom Niziol (NWS BUF), Mike Vescio (NWS FWD), Pete Wolf (NWS ICT), and the staff at WDTB in Norman.Other articles where Large-scale wind system is discussed: climate: Scale classes: Large-scale wind systems are distinguished by the predominance of horizontal motions over vertical motions and by the preeminent importance of the Coriolis force in influencing wind characteristics.

Examples of large-scale wind systems include the trade winds and the westerlies.which uses satellite imagery or other data to identify and correct the phase errors of the background field in the data assimilation system (Hoffman and Grassotti, and Gras-sotti et al., ).

This method allows the data assimilation system to force tropical cy-clones to follow their correct course, without the need for bogus data.
