Satellite Images of Turkey Show Whirlwind Damage

A whirlwind hit the Mediterranean Coast in the province of Antalya, Turkey, injuring 38 people and causing significant damage to agricultural land, cars, and houses.

European Space Imaging captured a very high resolution image of the beachside village of Mavikent in the District of Kumluca using the WorldView-2 satellite on November 16, three days after the whirlwind ripped through. The satellite image shows a clear trail of destruction through the landscape.

It is reported that a waterspout merged with a severe storm to form the whirlwind that reached speeds of up to 200 km per hour. The Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) have provided temporary shelters for people displaced by the storm.

Architecture of ResNet34-UNet model

UNet architecture for semantic segmentation with ResNet34 as encoder or feature extraction part. ResNet34 is used as an encoder or feature extractor in the contracting path and the corresponding symmetric expanding path predicts the dense segmentation output.

Architecture of VGG16-UNet model

Architecture of ResNet34-FCN model

In this model, ResNet34 is used for feature extraction and the FCN operation remains as is. The feature of ResNet architecture is exploited where just like VGG, as the number of filters double, the feature map size gets halved. This gives a similarity to VGG and ResNet architecture while supporting deeper architecture and addressing the issue of vanishing gradients while also being faster. The fully connected layer at the output of ResNet34 is not used and instead converted to fully convolutional layer by means of 1×1 convolution.

Architecture of VGG16-FCN model

In this model, VGG16 is used for feature extraction which also performs the function of an encoder. The fully connected layer of the VGG16 is not used and instead converted to fully convolutional layer by means of 1×1 convolution.
