A review is made of the assumptions that must be made in using a weather radar set for quantitative measurements of weather echoes. A simplified derivation is provided showing the relationship between the purely meteorological radar reflectivity factor Z and the radar received power for any weather radar set when the assumptions are fulfilled. A nomogram furnished for use with the ANFPS-77 enables a simple conversion of receiver power to Z values. Author
