To simultaneously compress multichannel climate data, the Wavelet Subbands Arranging Technique (WSAT) is studied. The proposed technique is based on the wavelet transform, and has been designed to improve the transmission of voluminous climate data. The WSAT method significantly reduces the number of transmitted or stored bits in a bit stream, and preserves required quality. In the proposed technique, the arranged wavelet subbands of input channels provide more efficient compression for multichannel climate data due to building appropriate parent-offspring relations among wavelet coefficients. To test and evaluate the proposed technique, data from the Nevada climate change database is utilized. Based on results, the proposed technique can be an appropriate choice for the compression of multichannel climate data with significantly high compression ratio at low error.
