Abstract
In this paper, we propose the use of optoelectronic joint transform correlator (JTC) and multifractal analysis based quality control (QC) to provide accurate, real-time identification of precipitation in weather data collected from meteorological-radar volume scans. The multifractal based QC algorithm is an objective algorithm that minimizes human interaction. The algorithm utilizes both textural and intensity information obtained from the two lower-elevation reflectivity maps. The multifractal exponents are obtained using the JTC system. Computer simulations are provided to show the effectiveness of this system.
