Addition by Subtraction: Raising the Bar for Satellite Imagery
When it comes to forecaster analysis of complex satellite imagery, less can be more, and a new technique aims to simplify imagery interpretation by suppressing the background noise.
A picture being worth a thousand words is not always such a good thing! When a complex environmental scene contains too much information, it can be hard for analysts operating in time-critical environments to digest it all.
The rich spatial, spectral, and temporal resolution offered by next-generation geostationary satellites such as the Himawari-8 Advanced Himawari Imager and the GOES-16 Advanced Baseline Imager, comes with an underlying challenge—how best to sip from this proverbial firehose of data...more
