INCREASES IN INFORMATION BANDWIDTH USING COMMUNICATION CHANNELS OF FIXED PHYSICAL BANDWIDTH ARE MADE POSSIBLE BY ELIMINATING REDUNDANT INFORMATION IN THE INFORMATION STREAM USING DATA COMPRESSION-DECOMPRESSION ALGORITHMS. IMAGES--ESPECIALLY MULTISPECTRAL OR COLOR IMAGES--PUT THE GREATEST STRAIN ON COMMUNICATIONS CHANNELS. A VARIETY OF EXISTING T...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1991
Budget: 01/01/91 - 12/31/91

THERE IS A NEED FOR IMPROVING THE FORECASTING OF LOCAL WEATHER ELEMENTS SUCH AS PRECIPITATION, SURFACE TEMPERATURE,ETC. CURRENT FORECASTS ARE MADE BY A STATISTICAL ADAPTATIONOF LARGE SCALE NUMERICAL FORECASTS. WE PROPOSE TO USE, INSTEAD, A MODEL THAT COMPUTES THE PHYSICAL PROCESSES THAT LOCALLY MODULATE THE LARGE SCALE METEOROLOGICAL FIELDS. THE...

Budget: 01/01/85 - 12/31/85

WE PROPOSE HERE TO OBTAIN FULLY THREE-DIMENSIONAL FIELDS OF TEMPERATURE FROM OBSERVED SATELLITE RADIANCES BY USING VARIATIONAL METHODS WHICH GENERALIZE WAHBA AND WENDELBERGER (1980). WE RECOGNIZE FROM THE START THAT RADIANCES OR THE EQUIVALENT BRIGHTNESS TEMPERATURES ARE ONLY PROXY DATA FOR TROPOSPHERIC TEMPERATURES AND THAT THE DERIVED TEMPERAT...

Phase 1 SBIR

Budget: 01/01/84 - 12/31/84

THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE CLOUD PROPERTIES FROM LANDSAT 4 THEMATIC MAPPER (TM) DATA BY COMBINING A SPATIAL COHERENCE APPROACH WITH A VARIETY OF CLOUD PARAMETER RETRIEVAL METHODS. THE TM HAS SEVEN SPECTRAL BANDS WHICH, IN PRINCIPLE, ALLOW CLOUD AMOUNT, HEIGHT, PHASE, AND THICKNESS TO BE RETRIEVED. CLOUD PARTICLE SIZE MAY ALSO BE RETRIEVABLE. THE ...
