Current Approaches to Cloud Motion Wind Generation.
Full text not available from this repository.
This paper outlines current operational techniques for generating Cloud Motion Winds (CMW), as applied by the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) (Schmetz et al 1993), and studied by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) (Susko et al 1995). The od is broken down into its four constituent parts, namely: Feature identification and classification Cloud--top enhancement Height assignment Tracking Each section is described briefly, with reference primarily to ESOC's approach, and the major sources of error are outlined. The fundamental issues relating to CMW generation are then summed up.
