1 October 1990 Overview of polarimetric techniques in radar meteorology
Author Affiliations +
An evaluation is made of the progress made to date on the application of radar polarimetry to the remote sensing of microphysical parameters via particle shapes, orientations, and compositions. Even without measuring the complete covariance or Mueller matrix, it is found possible to glean important quantitative and qualitative information, provided that the polarimetric estimators can be related to microphysical parameters. The complete covariance matrix approach is needed for particle identification at low temperatures.
