Visual hull method for realistic 3D particle shape reconstruction based on high-resolution photographs of snowflakes in freefall from multiple views
Proposed and presented is a visual hull method and technique for reconstruction of realistic 3D shapes of snowflakes and other hydrometeors based on high-resolution photographs of particles in freefall from multiple views captured by a multi-angle snowflake camera (MASC), or another similar instrument. The visual hull of an object is the maximal domain that gives the same silhouettes as the object from a certain set of viewpoints. From the measured fall speed and the particle shape reconstruction, the particle density and dielectric constant are estimated. This is the first time accurate realistic ...
