Applications of Weather Radar Systems: A Guide to Uses of Radar Data in Meteorology and Hydrology

Overview

A guide to the ways in which radar is used to address practical problems in meteorology, hydrology, and the environmental sciences, this book supplies sufficient theory to explain how radars function. The emphasis is on the characteristics of the data obtained from radar and how this data can aid an understanding of specific real life applications. Applications include the accurate forecasting of rainfall and other severe weather, the use of radar data as an input for forecasting models, the understanding of the ...
