Abstract Effects of beamfilling nonuniformities on the differential phase and rainfall estimation that use specific differential phase are examined. Two physical models are considered: an isolated rain cell with azimuthal dimensions comparable to the beamwidth and a sharp rain boundary approximating a squall line. The model results are compared to observations. An extension of the analysis to include observations of the melting layer is made. From this analysis emerges an interpretation of the… CONTINUE READING
