PARSAX An Informal Look at Radar Technology and Applications within TU Delft


State of the Science of Precipitation

AMS: State of the Science of Precipitation The American Meteorological Society created special thematic article collection State of the Science of Precipitation, available on-line. Abstracts for all AMS articles are available to everyone, as is the full text of Bulletin articles. Access to full-text HTML and PDF articles in the technical journals is limited to paid subscribers. It was my pleasure to find on that page a few articles by our colleagues and friends:

  • R. Uijlenhoet, J.-M. Cohard, M. Gosset, Path-average Rainfall Estimation From Optical Extinction Measurements Using a Large-aperture Scintillometer. Journal of Hydrometeorology, early online release. - link
  • Hidde Leijnse, Remko Uijlenhoet, Alexis Berne, 2010. Errors and Uncertainties in Microwave Link Rainfall Estimation Explored Using Drop Size Measurements and High-Resolution Radar Data. Journal of Hydrometeorology, Vol. 11, Iss. 6, 1330–1344.- link
  • H. Leijnse, R. Uijlenhoet, C. Z. van de Beek, A. Overeem, T. Otto, C. M. H. Unal, Y. Dufournet, H. W. J. Russchenberg, J. Figueras I. Ventura, H. Klein Baltink, I. Holleman, 2010. Precipitation Measurement at CESAR, The Netherlands. Journal of Hydrometeorology, Vol. 11, Iss. 6,1322–1329. - link

A few more articles can be interesting for radar polarimetry utilization in precipitation and hydrology research:

  • Jonathan J. Gourley, Scott E. Giangrande, Yang Hong, Zachary L. Flamig, Terry Schuur, Jasper A. Vrugt, 2010. Impacts of Polarimetric Radar Observations on Hydrologic Simulation. Journal of Hydrometeorology, Vol. 11, Iss. 3, pp. 781-796. - link

  • Timothy J. Lang, Steven A. Rutledge, Robert Cifelli, 2010. Polarimetric Radar Observations of Convection in Northwestern Mexico during the North American Monsoon Experiment. Journal of Hydrometeorology, Vol. 11, Iss. 6, 1345–1357.- link
