Detection of ship tracks in ATSR2 satellite imagery

Abstract:

Ships modify cloud microphysics by adding cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) to a developing or existing cloud. These create lines of larger reflectance in cloud fields that are observed in satellite imagery. Ship tracks are most frequently seen off the west coast of California, and the Atlantic coast of both west Africa and south-western Europe. In order to automate their detection within the Along Track Scanning Radiometer 2 (ATSR2) data set an algorithm was developed and integrated with the G...
