Abstract: This paper presents advanced image analysis methods for
extracting information from high speed Planar Laser Induced Fluores-
cence (PLIF) data obtained from turbulent flames. The application of
non-linear anisotropic diffusion filtering and of Active Contour Mod-
els (Snakes) is described to isolate flame boundaries. In a subsequent
step, the detected flame boundaries are tracked in time using a fre-
