Abstract

Methods for detecting linear contrail pixels in satellite infrared images are described. An objective contrail detection algorithm has been developed and extensively applied to data from various polar and geostationary satellite sensors. The method uses the contrast in brightness temperatures near 11 m and 12 m wavelengths and detects linear contrails using image processing techniques. The paper discusses the development of the algorithms, detection efficiency, false alarm rate, some of the results, and their validation. The contrail detection algorithm detects only a fraction of all contrail cirrus. Progress is expected from combining spatiotemporal satellite data in correlation with traffic and meteorological data.
