Description: Meteorological radars are increasingly used professionally for weather observation, forecasting and warning. This manual is a comprehensive introduction to the current technology and application of radar in meteorology and atmospheric sciences. Written by leading experts, the book offers a wide overview to meteorological radar systems and applications, with emphasis on observation and interpretation of physical processes in clouds and weather systems. Essentials variables and quantities are treated, including the radar reflectivity factor, Doppler, dual-polarization, and multi-wavelength radars.
The authors highlight wind retrieval from single and multiple Doppler radars, precipitation estimation and hydrometeorological applications, with chapters dedicated to interpretation of radar data from warm season mid-latitude severe weather, winter storms, tropical cyclones and more. In addition the text includes problems at the end of each chapter as a helpful review of the contents, and provides support and answers to problems, available via the book’s instructor website.
