Calibration of cloud radars with OTT Parsivel² distrometer data and its urban application

Radars are indispensable instruments for the observation of the spatio-temporal distribution of precipitation and their manufacturers pay careful attention to the calibration and quality control of radar components. So why the calibration of cloud radar systems is necessary? And what is the best way to do it?

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear about the research results from Meteorology University of Cologne, factors and implication that influence quality of radar data and its quantified precipitation estimate and more..
