Abstract
Based on the data from FY-2 meteorological satellite, this study investigates the potential of the satellite deep convection index and infrared multi-spectrum brightness temperature in identifying thunderstorm systems. To track the thunderstorm, we adopt the area overlap algorithm improved through the optical flow method. Based on these algorithms and continuous automatic tracking results, we seek to predict the location of thunderstorms by using linear extrapolation. It is proved that the combined usage of those algorithms is effective for thunderstorm identification, tracking and early-warning.
