S-pol Polarimetric Data for 990227

 

This page contains time series and scatter plots of various polarimetric quantities (Zh, Zdr, D0,LWC) over the University of Iowa 2DVD site (62 km range at azimuth 323 deg from S-pol) site using S-pol data in radar coordinates extracted from the 2DVD location. Horizontal reflectivity (Zh) and differential reflectivity (Zdr) are raw fields collected by S-pol. The derived quantity median volume diameter (D0) is based on a relation:

D0(Zdr) = 1.529*(Zdr)^0.467 [cm]

The derived quantity mass weighted mean diameter (Dm) is based on the relation:

Dm(Zdr) = 1.619*(Zdr)^(0.485) [mm]

The derived quantity LWC is based on the following relations:

LWC(Zh) = 0.00344*(Zh)^(4/7) [gm/m^3]

LWC(Zh,Zdr) = c*(Zh)^a*10^(b*Zdr) [gm/m^3] ; a=0.886, b=0.4159, c=0.0007

LWC(Kdp) = 0.34*(Kdp*10.0)^(0.702)

Time Cross Sections of raw and derived S-Pol data in radar coordinates (1.0 and 1.5 km height)

1. No averaging (height, range, or azimuth) of S-pol measurements (data represents the closest pixel to the 2DVD site).
