The estimation of the specific differential phase particularly in the presence of the differential backscatter phase and nonuniform propagation paths is a long-standing goal in weather radar polarimetry. Furthermore, a reliable estimator of the differential backscatter phase for precipitation measurements has not been proposed yet, although it contains valuable information about the presence of non-Rayleigh scattering and the microphysics of precipitation. In this letter, we introduce a novel… CONTINUE READING
