Abstract:

A review of work accomplished on this contract is presented including references to the appropriate interim reports for details. The limiting accuracy for radar estimation of rainfall rate is determined to be plus or minus 40 percent. The location of the medium range raingage network is shown along with the amount of data collected thus far. No results from this network are available at present. A Doctoral thesis entitled, Radar Cross Sections from Drop Size Spectra, is included as an Appendix.
