Apply Genetic Algorithm to Cloud Motion Wind
Cloud Motion Wind (CMW) is a very important issue in the meteorology. In this paper, we firstly apply Genetic Algorithm (GA) to the CMW searching to reduce the computational complexity. We propose a novel CMW method, namely GA-CMW. Compared with the traditional Exhaustive CMW (E-CMW) algorithm, GA-CMW can obtain almost the same performance while with only 11 % of the computational complexity required. Generally speaking, the proposed GA-CMW method can obtain the wind vector picture in shorter time, which makes a lot of sense to the resource saving in the practical application.
