Paper Abstract

Clouds exist at all levels of the lower, middle and upper atmosphere. This paper presents results of new techniques to use software/hardware systems for the ultrafast detection and use of information on the space/time variation of water and non-water clouds. Examples are chosen from both lower and middle atmosphere situations. Our methods apply to both spaceborne and ground-based detection systems. Output from the new ultrafast methods provides input for both simulation and operation of interceptor systems.
