Abstract

A comparison is given of radar estimates of rainfall parameters above a point location on the ground in central Illinois on October 28, 1982. Differential reflectivity (Z//D//R) radar measurements were used to derive the radar estimates while an electromechanical disdrometer system was used for the ground-based measurements. The purpose of this experiment was to assess the radar's ability to estimate drop size, rainfall rate and water content from (Z//H, Z//D//R) measurements. Refs.
