Paper Abstract

In this paper excellent results on rain pattern tracking are achieved by merging the information extracted from a weather radar data sequence by means of a correlation and a shape analysis approach. The two methods, namely the Tracking Radar Echoes by Correlation corrected by Continuity (COTREC) and the modal matching shape representation are jointly applied to the problem. This choice allows to exploit the advantages of both a global and a more local approach to a motion-based interpretation of rain events. Some results are shown, extracted from data sequences recorded by a C-band weather radar in Northern Italy.
