    Abstract

    The introduction of differential reflectivity (ZDR) as a second measurable in radar observation of rainfall has improved the accuracy of radar estimates of rainfall rate compared to the conventional Z-R method. ZDR is the difference (in dB) between the reflectivity factors at horizontal and vertical polarizations. A case study is presented, comparing rainfall rates estimated from dual linear polarization radar measurements and ground-based measurements of rainfall using a systematic approach that takes the horizontal storm motion into account. The data used in this study were collected on June 16, 1984 near Boulder, Colorado during MAYPOLE '84 (May Polarization Experiment) with the CP-2 radar and the raingauges of PAM (portable automated mesonet) 1 and 2 stations of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
