Recently, remote sensing satellite image is widely used to monitor phenomenon in the earth such as land use change, climate change and disaster. Every year, about two-thirds of the earth’s surface is always covered by cloud and it provides limitations in remote sensing applications and analysis. The main purpose of my project is to develop a novel method of cloud removal that will work in tropical regions. Several satellite dataset which have variety of cloud types and heterogeneous land cover will be collected and tested to assess the reliability of the method. The expected outcome is that the method can generate cloud-free satellite images properly and by taking advantage of this outcome, the images could be used appropriately in remote sensing applications and analysis especially in tropical countries.
