Abstract

Conical graupel is modeled using sphere-cone-oblate spheroidal shapes for the purpose of computing their backscattering properties at a wavelength of 10 cm in terms of the radar polarimetric observables, reflectivity factors, differential reflectivities and circular depolarization ratios. A shape distribution based on in situ measurements is used together with gamma (m=0,2) size distributions in the computations; both wet and dry graupel are considered. Significant differences in the radar observables between the wet and dry cases are noted and the effects of canting on the radar observables are considered.-from Authors
