Tracking Meteoroids in the Atmosphere: Fireball Trajectory Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis improves and develops algorithms for fireball trajectory analysis. Stochastic estimators outside the current field of fireball modelling have been applied, from Kalman filters to 3D particle filters. These techniques are fully automated and rigorously incorporate errors, providing a means to routinely analyse fireball data in an unbiased manner.

(2017)The expansion of the Australian Desert Fireball Network has been enabled by the development of a new digital fireball observatory based around a consumer digital camera. The observatories are more practical and much more ...

The assumption of a straight line trajectory has been considered an acceptable simplification for ...
