Rain Retrieval Performance of a Dual-Frequency Radar Technique with Differential Attenuation Constraint

Abstract

Assessments on the performance of dual-frequency (13.6/35.5 GHz) precipitation radar (DPR) rain retrieval techniques are performed through simple vertical rain profiles synthesized with arbitrarily defined and disdrometer-measured raindrop size distribution (DSD) data. A DPR inversion technique (DPR-IT) with the estimates of differential attenuation (DA… (More)
