A Description of the CSU–CHILL National Radar Facility
MetadataShow full item record
The subject of this paper is the Colorado State University-University of Chicago-Illinois State Water Survey (CSU-CHILL) National Radar Facility's S-band polarimetric research radar. Key features of this system include polarization agility (provided by the dual-transmitter, dual-receiver design), a recently updated signal processor, and a low (–34 dB, two way) integrated cross-polar ratio (ICPR2) antenna system. After reviewing the technical description of the radar, the authors present a new differential reflectivity (ZDR) calibration technique and data examples collected in different polarization ...
