Book Overview
In 2013 the United States reached a new milestone in radar meteorology, one unsurpassed by any other country in the world due to the American government's transparency policies regarding weather data. All of the Doppler radars were upgraded to make polarimetric measurements, yielding quantities like differential reflectivity, correlation coefficient, and specific differential phase. The entire meteorological community from weather hobbyists all the way to research directors are finding themselves immersed in a deep ocean of new radar data and trying to keep up with the latest improvements. All of these quantities come with a learning curve. For those who don't have the skills to make sense of the journals and technical papers or who just want a reference for the forecast desk, Weather Radar Handbook is designed to provide an excellent summary of the current state of radar meteorology from an operational forecasting perspective.
