For any quantitative applications that use reflectivity and/or differential reflectivity, radar observations need to be compensated for attenuation effects due to precipitation. This paper presents a robust attenuation correction system (ACS) for dual-polarization radars correcting the reflectivity factor as well as differential reflectivity profiles. The major advantage of the algorithm described in this paper is that the procedures are immune to the bias effect of reflectivity and… CONTINUE READING
