Polarization properties of radar waves that are scattered from atmospheric objects are of great interest in meteorological studies. However, polarimetric radar measurements are often not sufficiently accurate for retrieving physical properties of targets. To compensate for errors, radar polarimetric calibration is applied. Typical calibrations are performed based on measurements of point targets with known scattering matrices located in the boresight of the antenna. Such calibration takes intodoi:10.1175/1520-0426(2002)019<1968:ipcfar>2.0.co;2 fatcat:qt42bgplqbedzfeakgzxdrci2a
