Paper Abstract

The impact of lossy compression was considered for transmission of environmental image data. In the investigated implementation scenarios, it was found that compression at rates approaching 16:1 has minor impact on the exploitation and assessment of the ultimate derived automated cloud analysis, due to the robustness of this algorithm. Additional work is needed to evaluate the impact of compression on other products, such as sea surface temperature. The implementation included high dynamic range satellite imagery.
