Polarimetric radar signatures of precipitation at S- and C-bands
MetadataShow full item record
Polarimetric radar measurements in precipitation at S- and C-band frequencies are considered. Time series data were obtained from three advanced radars: the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) CP-2 radar, the National Severe Storms Laboratory's (NSSL) Cimarron radar, and the C-band Poldirad radar operated by the German Aerospace Research Establishment (DLR). Measurements of radar reflectivity, differential reflectivity ZDR, differential propagation phase ϕDP, and the crosscorrelation between horizontal and vertical polarised waves are derived from time series data in rain, rain mixed ...
