Paper Abstract

Velocity measurements of drifting atmospheric clouds have been regularly carried out by collecting imaged sites above the ground and statistical data processing of successive images. Time variations for in-plane moving with variable pre-set velocities dots, related to different parts of the imaged area, are obtained after the in-line selection of image pixels from non- collinear directions in the image plane. The temporary instability dependencies are constructed afterwards and their minima are located to determine the cloud main drift velocity direction first. New in-line data selection in the image plane, as close as possible to the already obtained velocity direction, provides the calculation of time variations for getting the velocity module for various sectors in the imaged area, possibly drifting with different velocities.
