The paper is concerned with the application of mobile ad hoc networks to phenomena clouds boundary detection and tracking. Self-organizing, coherent networks comprised of sensors and radio transceivers that maintain a continuous communication with each other and a central operator are considered. The attention is focused on the methodology for determining the temporarily optimal network topology for detecting the boundary of a cloud that can change its shape in time. We introduce several measures for assessment a quality of a network topology and propose a computing scheme for detection topology that is the optimal one at a given time. The utility and efficiency of the proposed methodology was justified through simulation experiments.
