POSSIBLE DETECTION OF WIDESPREAD GLACIATION THROUGHOUT UPPER REGIONS OF A STORM AFTER LOCAL SUNSET FROM DIFFERENTIAL REFLECTIVITY (Z//D//R) MEASUREMENTS DURING CCOPE.

T. A. Seliga, Kultegin Aydin

Abstract

In light of the importance of glaciation, evidence for its occurrence is essential for further understanding of cloud physics. This paper presents radar data, utilizing the differential reflectivity (Z//D//R) signal, which indicates the possibility of more complete glaciation having taken place within a cloud. The measurements were made with the CHILL radar on the evening of July 28, 1981 during the Cooperative Convective Precipitation Experiment (CCOPE) field program in Montana. Refs.
