Statistical Characteristics of Cloud Occurrence and Vertical Structure Observed by a Ground-Based Ka-Band Cloud Radar in South Korea

Bo-Young Ye, Eunsil Jung, Seungsook Shin, GyuWon Lee
2020 Remote Sensing  
HC and RainDP were frequently observed in summer and autumn, while RainSH, LC, and MC were dominant in the winter due to the dominant cloud development by the air-sea interaction during the cold air outbreak  ...  The HC showed a significant seasonal variation of the maximum height and the rapid growth in the layer above 7 km (about −15 °C) in summer and autumn.  ...  We also greatly appreciate students and researchers in CARE, KNU for participating in summer experiment 2014-2016.  ...

Study of land-sea microphysics associated with East Asian Summer Monsoon Rainband and its preliminary application to GPM DPR

Yun Zhang, Zuhang Wu, Lifeng Zhang, Yanqiong Xie, Yanbin Huang, Hepeng Zheng
2020 Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology  
Cross validation of GPM rainfall products are implemented based on surface disdrometer observations. DPR products manifest better performance over sea than land areas of EASM rainband.  ...  Raindrop size distribution (DSD) characteristics during East Asian Summer Monsoon (EASM) were studied, using measurements from three OTT Particle Size Velocity (Parsivel) disdrometers in Nanjing, Chuzhou  ...  We are thankful for the support from the National Key Research and Development Program of China (2018YFC1507304), the National Nature Science Foundation of China (41975066, 41865009) and the Beijing  ...
