Using ground-based stereo cameras to derive cloud-level wind fields


Using ground-based stereo cameras to derive cloud-level wind fields



Optics Letters 34(16): 2384-2386

Upper-level wind fields are obtained by tracking the motion of cloud features as seen in calibrated ground-based stereo cameras. By tracking many cloud features, it is possible to obtain horizontal wind speed and direction over a cone area throughout the troposphere. Preliminary measurements were made at the Mauna Loa Observatory, and resulting wind measurements are compared with winds from the Hilo, Hawaii radiosondes.
