Linear Depolarization Ratios of Columnar Ice Crystals in a Deep Precipitating System over the Arctic Observed by Zenith-Pointing Ka-Band Doppler Radar
Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology
This study demonstrates that linear depolarization ratio (LDR) values obtained from zenith-pointing Kaband radar Doppler velocity spectra are sufficient for detecting columnar ice crystals. During a deep precipitating system over the Arctic on 7 December 2013, the radar recorded LDR values up to 215 dB at temperatures corresponding to the columnar ice crystal growth regime. These LDR values were also consistent with scattering calculations for columnar ice crystals. Enhancements in LDR weredoi:10.1175/jamc-d-15-0012.1 fatcat:2v5c3vw2yffnhloy4xzddrrbam
