Abstract:

Article Preview

It is significance to identify and track convective clouds using satellite images in nowcasting and severe weather warning. This article applies simulated annealing algorithm to match and track convection clouds identified from infrared channel images of FY-2C satellite. The preliminary results suggest that simulated annealing algorithm is simple and effective to gain satisfactory results with adjustable features. The results also show the feasibility and characteristics of simulated annealing algorithm in cloud tracking and provide reference of simulated annealing algorithm application in other related research areas.
