ABSTRACT

Monitoring and forecasting meteorological conditions are critical to the safe and regular operation of the global air transport system. The introduction of new millimeter-wave radars into the practice of meteorological observations not only opens up opportunities for obtaining more detailed information about cloudiness, but also necessitates the development of appropriate calibration methods to ensure reliable quantitative results.

This talk is devoted to discussing peculiarities of W-band cloud radar calibration. After brief overview on meteorological radar calibration for quantitative information obtaining, we will focus on problems and their possible solutions in respect to mm-wave radar calibration using multi-instrument measurements. Experimental part of the research is based on measurements of rain provided during several years at the experimental range located in Cabauw, the Netherlands. The stored data are used for comparison and fusion of 94 GHz radar data with non-radar measurements of drop size distribution, provided by laser disdrometers, and weather station synchronous data. Specialized MATLAB software tool developed for this sophisticated processing complex data and radar calibration will be demonstrated.
