Cloud detection plays an essential role in meteorological research and has received considerable attention in recent years. However, this issue is particularly challenging due to the diverse characteristics of clouds. In this letter, a novel algorithm based on superpixel segmentation (SPS) is proposed for cloud detection. In our proposed strategy, a series of superpixels could be obtained adaptively by SPS algorithm according to the characteristics of clouds. We first calculate a local… CONTINUE READING
