Robust Linear Depolarization Ratio Estimation for Dual-Polarization Weather Radar

Abstract

Linear depolarization ratio (LDR) is often difficult to measure in low and moderate signal-to-noise ratio conditions because the cross-polar echo power is typically two to three orders of magnitude weaker than the copolar echo power. For radars operating at attenuating frequencies such as X-, Ku-, and Ka-bands, differential attenuation must be accounted for… (More)
