Abstract:

Algorithm Development Overview Objectives Improve pixel-level detection Reduce probability of false alarm for given Pd Address optically-thick plumes Improve accuracy of estimated path integrated concentration column density, CL Compatible with real-time processing Limitations of current practice Matched-filter-based detection presumes optically-thin plume Other approaches require prior measurements of background - not compatible with on-the-move detection Payoff Improve detection immediately following large-scale release, low-lying plumes improve mass estimate.
