Example Case: 13 May 2005
Radar ObservationsA convective precipitation observed by polarimetric S-band radar KOUN on 13 May 2005.
The following figures show PPI images of radar measuerments on 083020 UTC with EI=0.5 °.
Measurements: reflectivity, differential reflectivity, correlation coefficient, differential phase, and specific differnetial phase.
Disdrometer Observations and Calculations of Radar VariablesThe following results are based on the meausrements on 13 May 2005 by a disdrometer deployed at KFFL.
Rain variables (rainfall rate, totcal number concentration, and mean volume diameter) calculated from disdrometer measured DSDs.
Radar Echo Classification
Result of radar echo classification based on reflectivity, differential reflectivity, and correlation coefficient.
Retireved rainfall rate from radar measured reflectivity and differential reflectivity: (a) exponential DSD model; (b) C-G DSD model.
