Spectral Density of Polarimetric Variables Separates Biological Scatterers in the Vad Display

  title={Spectral Density of Polarimetric Variables Separates Biological Scatterers in the Vad Display},
  author={Svetlana Bachmann},
Echoes in clear air from two types of biological scatteres mixed within the resolution volumes over a large region, observed with S-band dual polarization radar, are presented. This case occurred in the evening of September 7, 2004, at the beginning of the Fall migrating season of song birds (passerines). Polarimetric spectral analyses are used for distinguishing birds and insects in multimodal spectra. Spatial continuity of spectral peaks shows clear separation of insect (wind) speeds from… CONTINUE READING
