Estimation and correction of wet ice attenuation for x-band radar
In the past, single polarized X-band radars were primarily used (along with S-band radars) for hail detection, first by the Russians and then later for the National Hail Research Experiment (NHRE). But X-band radars were not used alone because of the large attenuation at frequencies around 10 GHz and higher, until dual-polarized radars were developed. This fact has brought attention to development and evaluation of correction techniques for rain attenuation in order to exploit the advantages of dual-polarized data. Past developed methods make use of the close relation between the differential ...
