A polarimetric method is devised to correct for attenuation effects at C band on reflectivity ZH and differential reflectivity ZDR measurements. An operational cross-correlation analysis is used to derive advection vectors and to displace echoes over a 5-min time step. These advected echoes are then compared with observations valid at the same time. The method assumes that the mean change in the intrinsic ZH and ZDR over a 5-min period when considering 1–2 h of observations over the entire… CONTINUE READING
