Cross validation of observations from the GPM dual-frequency precipitation radar and dual-polarization S-band ground radars
MetadataShow full item record
This research presents a comparative study of observations and various products of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission Satellite with dual polarization S-Band Ground Radars. The GPM mission is a joint venture by the NASA and the JAXA. The radar on board the core observatory is a dual-frequency precipitation radar (DPR) capable of simultaneously operating at 13.6 GHz (Ku band) and 35.5 GHz (Ka band). The DPR is expected to revolutionize the way precipitation is measured from space through its dual-frequency observations. Ground Validation is one of the most critical aspects of the ...
