Cloud Analysis plays an important role in understanding the climate changes which will be helpful in taking necessary mitigation policies. This work mainly aims to provide a novel framework for tracking as well as extracting characteristics of multiple cloud clusters by combining dense and sparse motion estimation techniques. The dense optical flow (Classic-Nonlocal) method estimates intra-cloud motion accurately from low contrast images in the presence of large motion. The sparse or feature… CONTINUE READING
