The rigorous and accelerated data reduction (RADaR) technique in qualitative data analysis is a technique that uses a team-based approach to coding and analyzing qualitative data. The RADaR technique was developed for the purpose of analyzing various types (e.g., focus groups, interviews, case studies, existing documents, etc.) and quantities.

Curves are ob-tained using data collected from various radar ranges, i.e. Weather radar, also called weather surveillance radar (WSR) and Doppler weather radar, is a type of radar used to locate precipitation, calculate its motion, and estimate its type (rain, snow, hail etc.). Modern weather radars are mostly pulse-Doppler radars, capable of detecting the motion of rain droplets in addition to the intensity of the precipitation.

    interference is present. The multi-colored area near the radar is a normal, interference-free condition called clutter; it is caused by radar echoes from objects and atmospheric particles in the radar. OVERVIEW The general theory of wave propagation, with applications to radar and communications systems, has been the subject of several excellent books [1 4], and little has subsequently been added to the understanding of propagation phenomena.

Attenuation is the idea that the radar signal loses some of its strength as it travels through the weather. It serves two vital purposes: The signal that progresses returns at a later time, milliseconds later, allowing the radar receiver to interpret the signal as further distant.

Abstract: There is insufficient understanding of backscattering and attenuation for the radiowave remote sensing of snow because ground measurements of snow in the Ka-band are limited. This study estimates the equivalent radar reflectivity factor (Z e) and specific attenuation (k) of snow using a dual Ka-band radar (KaR) system comprising two identical Ka-band instruments.

Radar - Radar - Factors affecting radar performance: The performance of a radar system can be judged by the following: (1) the maximum range at which it can see a target of a specified size, (2) the accuracy of its measurement of target location in range and angle, (3) its ability to distinguish one target from another, (4) its ability to detect the desired target echo when masked by large.

attenuation-correction algorithms that may be applied, though most of these concern monitoring over an ocean surface where the surface reference technique is avail-able. They comment that the use of their forward-correction algorithm requires a well-calibrated radar.

Knowledge-based expert system (KBS) is in the realm of artificial intelligence. Attenuation is interruption of a radar beam by intense precipitation. The intense rain prevents the radar beam from reaching its maximum range, hence the less severe returns on a WXR radar.

Such attenuation can be shown on some weather radars by a purple or greyish colour. CurryR˙book 70 Chapter 4 Radar Environment 0 1 10 Frequency, GHz Two-Way Atmospheric Attenuation, dB/km Altitude 0 km 10 km 3 km Fig. Atmospheric attenuation coefficient, aA, vs.

Abstract: A probabilistic attenuation correction technique for a single-polarization networked radar environment is proposed. The proposed technique, based on the Bayesian theory, makes a maximization of a likelihood function of Hitschfeld-Bordan (HB) reflectivity obtained by each radar node.attenuation can be obtained using the emperical scaling procedure between specific attenuation, phase shift and rain rate [1].

The specific attenuation calculated from the imaginary part of the effective propagation constant K V,H, while the phase shift was from the real part of K V,H in the rain medium for the path length (L) taken as 1km.(attenuation coefficient- radar reflectivity factor) parameterization.

This-technique was originally developed for attenuating single-wavelength radars, a variation of which has been applied to the TRMM Precipitation Radar data (PR). Extensions of this method have also been applied to dual-polarization data.
