Cloud Cover Analysis from the GMS/S-VISSR Imagery Using Bispectral Thresholds Technique
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 9, issue 1, 1993, Pages 1~19
A simple bispectral threshold technique which reflects the temporal and spatial characteristics of the analysis area has been developed to classify the cloud type and estimate the cloud cover from GMS/S-VISSR(Stretched Visible and Infrared Spin Scan Radiometer) imagery. In this research, we divided the analysis area into land and sea to consider their different optical properties and used the same time observation data to exclude the solar zenith angle effects included in the raw data. Statistical clear sky radiance(CSRs) was constructed using maximum brightness temperature and minimum albedo from the S-VISSR imagery data during consecutive two weeks. The CSR used in the cloud anaysis was updated on the daily basis by using CSRs, the standard deviation of CSRs and present raw data to reflect the daily variation of temperature. Thresholds were applied to classify the cloud type and estimate the cloud cover from GMS/S-VISST imagery. We used a different thresholds according to the earth surface type and the thresholds were enough to resolve the spatial variation of brightness temperature and the noise in raw data. To classify the ambiguous pixels, we used the time series of 2-D histogram and local standard deviation, and the results showed a little improvements. Visual comparisons among the present research results, KMA's manual analysis and observed sea level charts showed a good agreement in quality.
Development of Receiving and Image Provessing System of GMS/WEFAX Using PC(I) - Description of the System Hardwares -
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 9, issue 1, 1993, Pages 21~35
In this study, an integrated GMS(Geostationary Meteorological Satellite) receiving ground system, which includes the real-time reception and image processing of WEFAX data, has been developed. The demodulator, PC demodulator, PC interface and application softwares of the system were made and integrated with the commercially available antenna and receiver. Hardwars of the system were described in this part. This system operates at IBM PC/AT or above. It can be used for students at school and for application research in the fields of meteorology, oceanography, hydrology and astronomy.

In this research, the WEF AX and APT(Automatic Picture Transmission) data receiving and image processing software using PC/AT called WADIPS(WEFAX and APT Data Integrated Processing System) Software has been developed. The main functions of WADIPS software are follow : 1) Real time receiving and saving to hard disk of WEFAX and APT data 2) B/W(Black and White) and false color display 3) Image enhancement using histogram stretch and color control 4) 2-4 times zooming 5) Hard copy of data using dithering and patterning 6) Animation 7) File management 8) On line help. WADIPS can be used in the offices or persons need real time meteorological information and education offices to teach the image processing technique and general characteristics of meteorological satellites.
Design and Implamentation of INTGIS toward an Integrated Geographic Information System
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 9, issue 1, 1993, Pages 51~78
The main purpose of this paper is to design and implement an integrated geigraphic information system. To this end, careful examinations of various existing GIS packages based on vector and raster type model were performed. A vector type INTGIS which is operating in MS-Windows environment was developed. INTGIS is composed of many modules creating various menus which are able to facilitate user interface with the system. The function and utility of INTGIS was tested using real data. We found INTGIS is reliable and useful for extensive spatial analysis and mapping activity. Further development of INTGIS will be carried on in order to integrate vector and raster data, and to manipulate three dimensional data.
A Note on the Geostrophic Velocity Estimation from a AVHRR Image and its Application
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 9, issue 1, 1993, Pages 79~93
The relative geostrophic velocity is estimated by using the MCSST(Multi-Channel Sea Surface Temperature) from a NOAA/AVHRR image and applied to the Korea Strait. Remote sensing technique can play a useful role to research for oceanic phenomena because of its synoptic, simultaneous and repetitive viewing. The high resolution data of AVHRR can determine the geostrophic flow more precisely than the hydrographic data on shipboard. As a result of research, the relative geostrophic velocity in the weatern channel of the Korea Strait is the strongest in the trough area and its maximum speed is about 23.8cm/sec in April, 1992. But this results include the error due to neglecting the effect of salinity in estimation the geopotential anomaly. The geostrophic volume transport through the western channel of the Korea Strait is the largest between trough area and the Tsushima Island.
