Abstract:

THE HEIGHT AND VELOCITY OF CLOUDS OVER A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE VISIBLE SKY CAN BE DETERMINED FROM THE GROUND BY MEANS OF TRIANGULATION WITH A PAIR OF CCD SENSORS. PATTERN RECOGNITION ON SHAPES CAN IDENTIFY THE TYPES OF CLOUDS. MOTION OF FEATURES OF THE SURFACES OF CLOUDS CAN IDENTIFY CLOUD DYNAMICS. WE PROPOSED TO CONSTRUCT AN INSTRUMENT USING OFF-THE-SHELF HARDWARE, AND APPLY COMPUTER ALGORITHMS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED AND TESTED IN SIMULATIONS BY THE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR IN ORDER TO PROVE THE CONCEPT.
