In this paper a robust processing chain for meteorological data handli11g is pmposed. The chain relies on a shape analysis technique, called modal matching, that is applied to the characterization and tracking of meteorological features from satellite images. Results show that a precise correspondence between point pairs in successit1e frames of a sequence can be achiet<ed, enabling to study the complex movements of meteorological structures in greater detail. Moreover, a technique to determine intermediate (not recorded) frames in a sequence is offered, useful for nowcasting and short-term. forecasting issues.
