Estimation and Correction of Wet Ice Attenuation at X-Band during a Convective Storms Using the X-Band CASA Radar Network IP1 and WSR-88D Radars Project uri icon


  • A preliminary technique is developed to separately estimate the X-band specific attenuation due to rain and wet ice along the path of the dual-polarized CASA radars and the mono-polarized NEXRAD WSR-88D radar. Has been tested on simulated data and measured data from the International H20 Project (IHOP) experiment from a case on June 16, 2002  and is currently being tested on a CASA convective case detected along with WSR-88D KOUN  and KTLX data.
