Derivation of parameters of Y-Z power-law relation from raindrop size distribution measurements and its application in the calculation of rain attenuation from radar reflectivity factor measurements
IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
The work reported herein empirically derived the coefficients of the power-law relation between the specific attenuation and each of two other quantities: the radar reflectivity factor and the rainfall rate . The derivation was accomplished using raindrop size distributions (DSDs) measured in Montreal and Toronto using the precipitation occurrence sensor system (POSS) and a Joss-Waldvogel disdrometer (JWD). The specific attenuation was calculated for both spherical and oblate spheroidaldoi:10.1109/tap.2003.808543 fatcat:7t6kj5ikebf2tnticdazhktude
