EEC Advances Polarimetric Radar Applications for Hydrology
Dual-polarization radar technology has rapidly become the industry standard, delivering more accurate quantitative precipitation estimation (QPE) and providing for the identification of the precipitation type (HMC).
Polarimetric attenuation correction and rainfall estimation at C band for an extreme rain event
S-band weather radars are primarily utilized for the observations of severe storms. The major reason for this is that shorter-wavelength radars may experience significant attenuation in heavy precipitation. A long-standing problem of attenuation correction at shorter radar wavelengths can be efficiently resolved if the radar has dual-polarization capability.
The impact of wet radome on the quality of polarimetric measurements
It is well known that wet radome causes attenuation of microwave radiation. Such a transmission loss is higher if the radome is dirty and not waxed.
