Abstract

In the autumn of 1981 the CHILL radar was operated with a dense network of 25 raingages in a research program in central Illinois to compare radar-derived estimates of rainfall rates with gage values. The primary goal of the the experiments was to obtain data for testing the differential reflectivity (Z//D//R) radar technique of measuring rainfall. This paper presents the results of an event on November 23 when one of the longest duration and intense rainfalls of the observational period occurred. Refs.
