Three working areas are documented: 1) automatic mosaicing of rectified TIROS video data, 2) infrared visual correlation of TIROS radiometer data, and 3) analysis of cloud distribution from TIROS rectified mosaics. Examples of rectified mosaics at different resolutions for seven selected TIROS orbits are included. (Author)
