For many practical reasons such as hurricane prediction and airplane safety, detection and tracking of turbulence structures are important problems to study.  In this talk we present two approaches for solving the detection problem: wavelet domain template matching and methods based on mathematical morphology. For the tracking side, a procedure based on Kalman filtering is being developed. This procedure outclasses other tracking methods adopted in the atmospheric literature in the sense that it can handle birth and death of turbulence structures, and incorrectly detected structures.
Refreshments will be served at 3:45 p.m. in Room 008 of the Statistics Building .
