Abstract
This research is mainly concern with the development of a weather monitoring and prediction system using satellite data downloaded freely from the internet. This document summarizes the important results of several investigations that have been conducted during the years of 2003-2005 which can be divided into four parts. First, an automatic system for downloading and pre-processing the satellite data has been established on a linux personal computer. A process study on short-range weather variability over Java Island has then been conducted using the satellite and other auxilliary data. A technique to predict future changes of 2-D spatial variation in the infra-red temperature has also been developed based on principle component analysis and adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system. Finally, the potential use of GPS/Meteorology data for weather monitoring and prediction is discussed. All of the results suggest that satellite data can be used for an objective short-range weather forcasting with the help of a suitable empirical prediction method. Such a weather monitoring and prediction system will be useful in anticipating a plausible immediate occurrence of medium to large-scale convective system that can produce exessive amount of rainfall.
