Improving weather radar by fusion and classification

  title={Improving weather radar by fusion and classification},
  author={Harald Ganster and Martina Uray and Sylwia Steginska and Gerardus Croonen and Rudolf Kaltenb{\"o}ck and Karin Hennermann},
In air trac management (ATM) all necessary operations (tactical planing, sector configuration, required stang, runway configu- ration, routing of approaching aircrafts) rely on accurate measurements and predictions of the current weather situation. An essential basis of information is delivered by weather radar images (WXR), which, unfortu- nately, exhibit a vast amount of disturbances. Thus, the improvement of these datasets is the key factor for more accurate predictions of weather phenomena…

A soft-computing technique based on clustering, segmentation and a two-stage neural network to censor all non-precipitating artifacts in weather radar reflectivity data is described and it is demonstrated that the technique is capable of discrimination between light snow, stratiformrain and deep biological ”bloom”.

Textural Features for Image Classification

These results indicate that the easily computable textural features based on gray-tone spatial dependancies probably have a general applicability for a wide variety of image-classification applications.

The covariance tracking method does not make any assumption on the measurement noise and the motion of the tracked objects, and provides the global optimal solution, and it is shown that it is capable of accurately detecting the nonrigid, moving objects in non-stationary camera sequences.
