About this book

Weather radar systems provide data necessary for the understanding of weather systems, improved forecasts, hydrological applications, flood warnings and also for climate research in which ground verification is needed for global precipitation measurements by satellites. This book offers an accessible overview of advanced methods, applications and modern research from the European perspective.

From the reviews: "Meischner's book successfully merges meteorological and technological aspects of weather radar into a meaningful discourse of theory and application. Weather Radar is an assortment of important radar-related topics ! . This is a book for radar engineers and weather radar users ! interested in concepts of multispectral analysis or polarization or sensor combinations or severe weather systems ! . Sections of the book provide excellent discussions of flood forecasting and precipitation measurements in mountainous terrain or in cold climates." (Randy Steadham, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, November, 2005)
