    Abstract

    Dual-polarization radar measurements were made simultaneously with T-28 aircraft (Johnson and Smith, 1980) penetrations during a hailstorm in central Oklahoma on June 5, 1991. This experiment was conducted as part of the Cooperative Oklahoma Profiler Studies (COPS-91) at the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL). Reflectivity factor ZH) and differential reflectivity (ZDR; Seliga and Bringi, 1976) measurements were used for detecting hail and graupel, which were confirmed in situ with aircraft. Simulations of these radar measurements are derived from T-28 measurements of hydrometeor size and shape using a foil impactor and a 2D-P probe. The simulated ZH and ZDR are then compared with actual radar measurements along the aircraft track.
