Microwave weather radars are considered a fairly established technique for retrieving rain rate fields over large areas. However, the spatial coverage of these instruments is usually limited to land and coastal regions. Here, a method to extend the rain rate estimate beyond the spatial coverage of a weather radar system is proposed, using the synergy with(More)
A new data processing chain has been applied to polarimetric radar observations at X band. The article describes the chain and provides an analysis of the quality of the polarimetric variables. Different algorithms have been studied based on simple Z<sub>h</sub>-R, on Z<sub>h</sub> and Z<sub>dr</sub>, on K<sub>dp</sub> and K<sub>dp</sub> and Z<sub>dr</sub>.(More)
During an eruptive event, the near-real-time monitoring of volcanic explosion onset and its mass flow rate (MFR) is a key factor to predict ash plume dispersion and to mitigate risk to air traffic. Microwave (MW) weather radars have proved to be a fundamental instrument to derive eruptive source parameters. We extend this capability to include an(More)
In this work autotrophic nitrogen removal was implemented through the combined biological processes of short-cut nitrification and anoxic ammonium oxidation (anammox) in a single sequencing batch reactor (SBR). The SBR received the effluent of an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) that treated low strength synthetic wastewater. The main challenge was to(More)
