Dense motion estimation for dynamic natural phenomena (water, smoke, fire, etc.) is a significant open problem. Current approaches tend to be either general, giving poor results, or specialise in one phenomenon and fail to generalise. Segmentation of phenomena is also an open problem. This paper describes an approach to estimate dense motion for dynamic phenomena that is simple, general, and which yields state of the art results. We use our dense motion field to segment phenomena to above state of the art levels. We demonstrate our contributions using lab-based video, video from a public dataset, and from the internet.
