Retrieval of Snow and Rain From Combined X- and W-Band Airborne Radar Measurements

Abstract

Two independent airborne dual-wavelength techniques, based on nadir measurements of radar reflectivity factors and Doppler velocities, respectively, are investigated with respect to their capability of estimating microphysical properties of hydrometeors. The data used to investigate the methods are taken from the ER-2 Doppler radar (X-band) and cloud radar… (More)
