Design and Implementation of a Cloud Particle Shape Recognition Algorithm Based on MATLAB

Project Code :TMMAIP417


The primary objective of this project is to develop a robust and efficient cloud particle shape recognition algorithm using MATLAB. This algorithm will analyze images or data of cloud particles and classify them based on their shapes, contributing to a deeper understanding of atmospheric processes and aiding in meteorological research.


Clouds are an important factor affecting climate change and the cloud microphysical characteristics are an important aspect to describe the cloud. Airborne two-dimensional stereo probe detector (2D-S) is widely used in domestic meteorological observation for the cloud microphysics research. Aiming at the situation that cloud particle shape classification based on artificial naked eye is not only subjective and different, but also time-consuming and poor in classification effect, a cloud particle shape recognition method based on convolution neural network (CNN) is proposed. A 21-layer convolutional neural network model is built by using a lightweight convolution module to realize the automatic shape recognition of cloud particle shapes.
