On the Diurnal Variation of Cloudiness over the Weatern Pacific by Using GMS-IR Data
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 13, issue 1, 1997, Pages 1~12
The western equatorial Pacific Ocean, where sea surface temperature is the warmest on the globe, is characterized by numerous convective systems and large annual precipitation. In this region, the cloudiness data with tops higher than 8km level obtained from the GMS-IR data are used to investigate the diurnal variation of cloudiness. The amplitude and phase of diurnal and semi-diurnal cycles are mainly investigated to examine details on the temporal and spatial structure of clouds. Cloudiness variation has typical cycles and each cycle is associated with the air-sea interactive phenomena. Spectral analysis on the cloudiness time series data indicates that 30-60 day, 17-20day, 7-8 day, diurnal and semi diurnal cycle are peaked. During Northern Winter and Southern Summer, the large cloudiness exsists over New Guinea, the adjacent seas of North Australia, and the open oceanic regions east of
E. Cloudiness diurnal variability over the lands and their adjacent seas is about 2.0 times larger than that over the open sea regions. That may be due to the difference of specific heat between the land and sea. The maximum and minimum cloudiness appeared at 18:00 and 09:00 hours over the land, and at noon and 21:00 hours over the sea, respectively. The amplitude of diurnal component over the land is 4,7 times larger than that of semi-diurnal component, and 1.5 times over the sea.
Development of a Remotely Sensed Image Processing/Analysis System : GeoPixel Ver. 1.0
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 13, issue 1, 1997, Pages 13~30
Recent improvements of satellite remote sensing sensors which are represented by hyperspectral imaging sensors and high spatial resolution sensors provide a large amount of data, typically several hundred megabytes per one scene. Moreover, increasing information exchange via internet and information super-highway requires the developments of more active service systems for processing and analysing of remote sensing data in order to provide value-added products. In this sense, an advanced satellite data processing system is being developed to achive high performance in computing speed and efficieney in processing a huge volume of data, and to make possible network computing and easy improving, upgrading and managing of systems. JAVA internet programming language provides several advantages for developing software such as object-oriented programming, multi-threading and robust memory managent. Using these features, a satellite data processing system named as GeoPixel has been developing using JAVA language. The GeoPixel adopted newly developed techniques including object-pipe connect method between each process and multi-threading structure. In other words, this system has characteristics such as independent operating platform and efficient data processing by handling a huge volume of remote sensing data with robustness. In the evaluation of data processing capability, the satisfactory results were shown in utilizing computer resources(CPU and Memory) and processing speeds.
The Design and Implementation of a Remotely-Sensed Image Processing System using Internet
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 13, issue 1, 1997, Pages 31~46
In recent years, as remotly-sensed image processing technologies have been improved and spread widely in the application areas, many new requirements for the image processing technologies have arisen. However, it is difficult and costly to access remotely-sensed image processing systems. Moreover, these systems have thier own processing facilities which are not easily accessible for general users. In this paper, those problems are challenged by adopting Internet as a universal information network for accessing remotly-sensed image DBMS and by allowing users to work remotely on the image processing. A remotly-sensed image processing system which can be accessed via Internet was designed and implemented. This system can be used to manipulate images over remote DBMS. The Illustra object-oriented relational DBMS with CGI(Common Gateway Interface) web interface was used in this project. The client consists of a WWW(World Wide Web) Netscap
browser, and the server consists of HTTPD(Web daemon), Illustra DBMS and Java modules in order to process the image being displayed. The developed system was tested on LAN environment and the service response time met the requirements.
The Interpretation Of Chlorophyll a And Transparency In A Lake Using LANDSAT TM Imagery
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 13, issue 1, 1997, Pages 47~56
In this paper, remote sensing is used to estimate trophic state which is primary concern in a lake. In using remote sensing, this study estimated trophic state not with conventional method such as regression equations but with classification methods. As europhication is caused by the extraodinary proliferation of the algae, chlorophyll a and transparency are applied to remote sensing data.. Maximum Likelihood Classification and Minimum Distance Classification which are kinds of classification methods enabled trophic state to be confirmed in a lake. These are obtained as the result of applying remote sensing to classify trophic state in a lake. Firest, when we evaluate tropic state in a large area of water body, the application of remote sensing data can obtain more than 70% accuracies just in using basic classification methods. Second, in the aspect of classification, the accuracy of Minimum Distance Classification is usually better than that of Maximum Likelihood Classification. This result is caused that samples have normal distribution, but their numbers are a few to apply statistical method. Therefore, classification method is required such as artificial neural networks which are not influenced by statistical distribution. Third, this study enables the trophic state of water body to be analyzed and evaluated rapidly, periodically and visibly. Also, this study is good for forming proper countermeasure accompanying with trophic state progress extent in a lake and is useful for basic-data.
Topographic Normalization of Satellite Synthetic Aperture Radar(SAR) Imagery
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 13, issue 1, 1997, Pages 57~73
This paper is related to the correction of radiometric distortions induced by topographic relief. RADARSAT SAR image data were obtained over the mountainous area near southern part of Seoul. Initially, the SAR data was geometrically corrected and registered to plane rectangular coordinates so that each pixel of the SAR image has known topographic parameters. The topographic parameters (slope and aspect) at each pixel position were calculated from the digital elevation model (DEM) data having a comparable spatial resolution with the SAR data. Local incidence angle between the incoming microwave and the surface normal to terrain slope was selected as a primary geometric factor to analyze and to correct the radiometric distortions. Using digital maps of forest stands, several fields of rather homogeneous forest stands were delineated over the SAR image. Once the effects of local incidence angle on the radar backscatter were defined, the radiometric correction was performed by an empirical fuction that was derived from the relationship between the geometric parameters and mean radar backscatter. The correction effects were examined by ground truth data.
