Abstract:

Quantitative data recorded from a FM-CW radar provide a unique means of studying the microstructure of radar echoes from the clear atmosphere. A computer program is developed to compute reflectivity from digitized radar signal data, using a derived power calibration function, and correcting for range dependence of the received power. The report discusses the handling of the data and the derivation of the calibration equation, and present sample output from the computation including a contoured height-time record of reflectivity.
