Polarimetry for Weather Surveillance Radars

  title={Polarimetry for Weather Surveillance Radars},
  author={Dusan Zrnic and Alexander V. Ryzhkov},
Scientific evidence accumulated over the last decade indicates that weather radar polarimetry has passed two important tests. First, as suggested by theory, polarimetric signals contain significant information about hydrometeor habits; and second, the information can be retrieved with sufficient accuracy to be useful. If it passes the cost effectiveness test, the technique should be adopted for operational applications. Although this could occur in less than 10 years, there is a large number of… CONTINUE READING
