Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we propose an efficient method of Asian dust extraction by 3-Dimensional histogram using satellite image (NOAA/AVHRR, TERRA/MODIS). Past methods of Asian dust extraction have a problem that it does not distinguish between Asian dust and others. So, our method is able to visualize the indexes which correspond to vegetation, soil and water by simultaneous processing. And then, we specify the Asian dust by watching and extract it by using 3-Dimensional histogram. We compared proposed with past methods using image when Asian dust came to Japan. The proposed method is more worth for extracting.
