Polarimetric Doppler Weather Radar: Principles and Applications / Edition 1by V. N. Bringi, V. Chandrasekar
Pub. Date: 11/01/2001
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This work provides a detailed introduction to the principles of Doppler and polarimetric radar, focusing in particular on their use in the analysis of weather systems. The authors first discuss underlying topics such as electromagnetic scattering, polarization, and wave propagation. They then detail the engineering aspects of pulsed Doppler polarimetric radar, before examining key applications in meteorology and remote sensing. The book is aimed at graduate students of electrical engineering and atmospheric science as well as practitioners involved in the applications of polarimetric radar.
