For IDRA data acquired between 1 October 2010 and 31 January 2012, additional quicklooks are online available:
Shown are the plan-position indicators of the
- reflectivity corrected for gaseous and rain attenuation (dBZ),
- estimated instantaneous rainfall rate (mm h-1),
- specific differential phase (deg km-1), and
- differential backscatter phase (deg).
The data is of special interest for researchers in the field of radar meteorology who want to study the influence of the so-called differential backscatter phase on X-band weather radar data. To our knowledge, this weather radar dataset is the first one for which the differential backscatter phase has been explicitly estimated.
