Cloud base height estimation using high-resolution whole sky imagers

Abstract

Fine scale cloud monitoring using ground-based imagers is becoming popular for a variety of applications and domains. We present a framework for cloud base height estimation using two such imagers; our method is based on stereoscopic scene flow. We demonstrate the feasibility of our approach and use computer-generated images with controlled cloud height to validate the accuracy of our method.
