NASA Computational Case Study Characterizing Moving Particles
Nov.-Dec. 2011 (vol. 13 no. 6)
pp. 76-78

Studying small particles is of interest to NASA scientists for many applications, such as characterizing the lunar and Martian dust environments. In this homework, we characterize the motion of small particles using image analysis.
