Abstract : A general meteorological radar equation is derived from studies on the coherent scattering of radar waves by cloud droplets and raindrops. The conventional meteorological radar equation is a special form of this new derivation by neglecting the effect of coherent scattering. From a discussion of several aspects of the new equation, it is noted that the commonly observed discrepancy between computed results from the conventional equation and experimental evidence may be due to the negligence of the effect of coherent scattering.
