Weather radars are used to measure the electromagnetic radiation backscattered by cloud raindrops. Clouds that backscatter more electromagnetic radiation consist of larger droplets of rain and therefore they produce more rain. The idea is to predict rainfall rate by using weather radar instead of rain-gauges measuring rainfall on the ground. In an(More)
– We show how the TRMM Precipitation Radar (TPR) can be used to monitor and adjust Ground-based Radar (GR) data as a function of the distance from the radar site. The analysis is based on the average, linear radar reflectivity in circular rings around the GR site, <Z> 2π , as a function of the range from the GR site. The GR/TPR ratio varies for the Cyprus(More)
