Abstract:

The potential climatological utilization of vertically pointingeather radar observations is discussed. The optimum tilt angle and antenna rotation rate to detect scattered clouds that are often missed by a fixed vertical antenna are included. Examples of the probable appearance of several cloud distributions as shown by fixed and scanning antennas are presented. A method of summarizing the data for climatological purposes by the utilization of punched cards is presented in the final section of the report. Author
