Change_Detection.m

This software greatly automates the process allowing rapid detection of changes. Recently, evidence of water induced changes to the martian surface were observed by a frame-toframe change detection technique. This software could perform the same task at a much quicker rate allowing for more data to...

Characterization of cloud water content distributions

The fundamental problem of cloud parameterization is to characterize the distributions of cloud variables at sub-grid scales and to relate the sub-grid variations to the resolved flow. This software solves the problem by estimating the probability density function of cloud water content at the sub-...
