Three-dimensional cloud visualization based on satellite imagery
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-12)
This thesis presents three-dimensional visualizations of cloud scenes created with scientific visualization software implemented on high-performance graphic workstations. Cloud scenes are constructed for four separate ...
Precipitation analyses using SSM/I measurements for selected ERICA cyclones
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-06)
A recently developed SSM/I exponential rain algorithm is evaluated using passive microwave data from ERICA OPs 2, 3, 4, and 5. Resulting SSM/I rain analyses were first compared with aircraft radar and coastal radar data. ...
Multispectral analysis of nighttime low clouds over the ocean.
Multispectral imagery is used for the analysis of nighttime low clouds whose cloud top temperatures are similar to that of the ocean surface. At night AVHRR channel 3 (3.7 pm) and channel 4 (10.8 /^m) brightness ...
An examination of radiation in an integrated marine atmospheric boundary layer model
An integrated marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) model is evaluated relative to its ability to estimate longwave and shortwave radiation. the model is initialized and verified using data taken during the 1983 Mixed ...
Three-dimensional display of synoptic-scale weather data.
This thesis develops a technique for the three-dimensional (3-D) display of clouds, topography and atmospheric surfaces on an image and graphics analysis system. Cloud heights were estimated from infrared satellite ...
Numerical simulation of the forcing of monsoon surges by mid-latitude baroclinic waves
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1983-09)
A global, six-level, primitive equation model was numerically integrated to examine the interaction of a mid-latitude baroclinic wave with several different mountain-valley configurations. The purpose was to determine the ...
