Paper Abstract

An image analysis method is presented for use in detecting strong windshear events, called microbursts, in Doppler weather radar images. This technique has been developed for use in a completely automated surveil-lance system being procured by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the protection of airport terminal areas. The detection system must distill the rapidly evolving radar imagery into brief textual warning messages in real time, with high reliability.
