This paper focuses on the tracking and analysis of convective cloud systems from Meteosat Second Generation images. The highly deformable nature of convective clouds, the complexity of the physical processes involved, and also the partially hidden measurements available from image data make difficult the direct use of conventional image-analysis techniques for tasks of detection, tracking, and characterization. In this paper, we face these issues using variational-data-assimilation tools. Such… CONTINUE READING
