The system of Doppler weather surveillance radars known as WSR-88D or more popularly as NEXRAD helped transform radar ornithology in the United States into a field that today attracts considerable attention from scientists and laypersons alike. As interest in ornithological applications of WSR-88D grows, so does the need to provide perspective on its use. In this paper, we introduce WSR-88D and consider issues associated with interpretation of WSR-88D imagery and quantification of data. Because… CONTINUE READING
