(meteorology)
Any of the methods and techniques used to ascertain the formation of storms, including procedures for locating, tracking, and forecasting; special tools adapted to this purpose are radar and satellites to supplement meteorological charts and visual observations.

Similar to this work, another research was presented (Wong et al., 2015), a multi-scale hybrid neural network retrieval model for dust storm detection, a study in Asia.
There's also something to be said for keeping some storm detection that doesn't rely on receiving a message from space.
Our storm detection efficiency is around 99 percent.
Weather researchers will use the system to improve storm detection software now used by forecasters.
The proposal calls for the use of a satellite system rather than radars to track flights; giving pilots and controllers more freedom to route flights instead of following fixed paths; the use of newer equipment that allows earlier storm detection; and allowing aircraft to fly closer than the current 2,000 feet.
This section includes two panel reports, one on precipitation measurement and hydrology and the other on severe storm detection. In addition, an appendix that contains information on radar data processing and short period forecasting in the UK is included.
All three of these main tools provide long-range storm detection. When they're available, they should be used to establish a storm's position and relative movement and help us plan how we'll get around them.
