Intercomparison of techniques to correct for attenuation of C-band weather radar signals
MetadataShow full item record
Quantitative application of radar measurements at C band requires correction for attenuation. Algorithms to correct for attenuation and differential attenuation are evaluated based on theoretical analysis as well as radar data. The error structure of three different attenuation correction algorithms based on (a) reflectivity, (b) reflectivity and differential reflectivity, and (c) specific differential propagation phase is analyzed. The error structure of two algorithms to correct the differential attenuation based on (a) reflectivity and differential reflectivity, and (b) specific differential ...
