It is thought that satellite thermal infrared (IR) images can aid to the detection of precipitation, an interesting possibility due to the existence of geostationary satellites with thermal IR sensors which would enable a good spatial and temporal tracking of rain and storms. In this letter, we explore the application of multiscale/multifractal techniques in the design of new methods for the assessment and tracking of pluviometry. We first identify the main streamlines by a singularity analysis… CONTINUE READING
