Abstract

The spatial and spectral luminance properties of a cloud's surface are being studied to gather more information about the microphysical processes occurring within the cloud. A real-time, field-implementable image processing system has been developed by the authors to sense and display this luminance information, and is described in this paper. Applications, including the investigation of “crown flash” phenomena, are described.
