Abstract

We are experimenting with a correlation method that allows us to cross-correlate images that have geolocated pixels without having to bin the pixels and lose resolution. In addition to preserving resolution, this correlation method also allows us to perform transformations on the images that would be difficult to perform with other correlation methods. We are working on this correlation method in order to use cross-correlations to track polar mesospheric clouds (PMCs) using the data from the Cloud Imaging and Particle Size (CIPS) instrument on the Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) satellite.
