Visible and Infrared Dust Detection Techniques

Visible and Infrared Dust Detection Techniques

    • This module has been retired and is no longer available on MetEd.

This Webcast, presented by Tom Lee (Naval Research Laboratory, Monterey, California) demonstrates techniques for dust detection using standard visible and longwave infrared window channels available worldwide on geostationary and polar-orbiting satellite instruments. Several examples from southwest Asia and Africa demonstrate techniques such as using control images, stretching enhancement curves, and using looping to highlight dust features.
