  author={Anna Fornasiero and P. P. Alberoni and Roberta Amorati and Luca Ferraris and A. C. Taramasso},
A large part of the research in the radar meteorology is devoted to the evaluation of the radar data quality and to the radar data processing. Even when, a set of absolute quality indexes can be produced (like as ground clutter presence, beam blockage rate, distance from radar, etc.), the final product quality has to be determined as a function of the task and of all the processing steps. In this paper the emphasis lies on the estimate of the rainfall at the ground level taking extra care for… CONTINUE READING
