Two portable mono-static FMCW Doppler radar profiler systems have been calibrated using a continuously rotating corner reflector. The front-ends of both radars apply semiconductors for the generation of the transmitted power. The portable 24 GHz profiler’s aim is to record and investigate precipitation close to the ground. The 94 GHz profiler was developed(More)
Since many years Doppler radar profilers are known as valuable tools to retrieve profiles of rain rate and further rain parameters (e.g. Wakasugi et al. (1986)). Applying well established relations for terminal fall velocity, shape and backscatter cross section of rain drops allows to derive rain rate without empirical assumptions. For calculating the(More)
Frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar, optionally with Doppler capability, is applied in atmospheric remote sensing since decades. The method is well understood and documented in its original theoretical analogue representation, as are its inherent restrictions. But since the introduction of the method the digitization has reached many areas of(More)
