Paper Abstract

Full color image processing systems are becoming more prevalent in the meteorological community. Aside from the usual capability for display of grey scale and pseudo color imagery, these full color systems can be used to create false color representations of multispectral imagery (the subject of another paper to be presented at this conference). This paper describes a simple technique to extend the display of meteorological imagery on a full color system from the spectral domain to the temporal domain. Potential application of this technique include display of temporal changes without having to animate the imagery. It is very difficult to publish images in the literature demonstrating temporal changes, since in performing the research the investigator usually animates these imagery at a workstation. Now the temporal changes can be displayed in the color domain for representation on a static display. It may even be possible to perform cloud tracking on a static display.
