Abstract

IRCTR has built an experimental X-band Doppler po-larimetric weather radar system aimed at obtaining high temporal and spatial resolution measurements of precipitation, with particular interest in light rain and drizzle. In this paper a first analysis of the feasibility of obtaining accurate quantitative precipitation estimation from the radar data performed using a high density network of rain gauges is presented.
