Abstract The presence of undetected mixed-phase precipitation or superimposed intense clutter can cause serious errors in the estimation of rainfall rate and other parameters of precipitation occurring in the radar scattering volume. To reduce or avoid these errors it is necessary to distinguish between the rain echo, and that due to other types of precipitation, and between precipitation radar echoes and ground clutter. Multiparameter radar measurements may be exploited for this discrimination… CONTINUE READING
