  • Cloud Shadow Detection for Ocean Color Imagery | TechLink
    and space borne ocean color sensors Cloud shadows can produce errors of 30 40 in the observed reflectance of individual pixels in an image resulting in corruption of biophysical parameters derived from the pixel values such as phytoplankton biomass In the method a Cloud Shadow Detection Index CSDI is generated by comparing radiance from pixels illuminated by direct and diffuse sunlight to cloud shadowed pixels lit only by diffuse light The CSDI is generated entirely from visible light channels alleviating the need for thermal and shortwave infrared bands and does not require inputs of viewing angle nor estimations of cloud vertical heights The Navy s technology is less computationally intense than geometry based cloud shadow approaches allowing rapid image processing An innovative Adaptive Sliding Box feature teases out the subtle differences between cloud shadowed and sunlit pixels in a manner that uses raw top of atmosphere radiance digital counts As a result there is no need for data calibration or atmospheric correction Cloud shadow detection can improve ocean color imagery products such as chlorophyll and bathymetry estimates enable the automation of sensor calibration and atmospheric correction without the need for resource intensive ground truthing and improve local weather forecasting by fully accounting for cloud shadow effects The technology can also be used to estimate cloud base and cloud top heights Additional Information Defense Technology Information Center DTIC Report Optical Algorithm for Cloud Shadow Detection Over Water Benefits Simple The only input required is raw top of atmosphere radiance from visible bands in the 400 720 nm range eliminating the need for angular information cloud vertical height estimation or ground truthing Fast Less computationally intense than geometry based systems Customizable Users can adjust the size of the Adaptive Sliding Box in order to most accurately capture cloud shadow based on the
