Abstract

Two techniques for measuring the velocity of inhomogeneities drifting in the atmosphere by the capturing and processing of their images are suggested. Properly selected data records of imaged clouds are used for building time variations of in-plane moving dots, related to different parts of the area of measurement and also corresponding to the image-detector pixel resolution. The precision in obtaining the velocity is provided by adjustment of the time between two successive image registrations.
