Abstract : The paper presents a radar analysis of 12 hailstorms over the Peking region in 1964 with particular emphasis on the four most intense ones. The study was supplemented by surface observations and is mainly concerned with the evolutionary characteristics of the radar echoes. In addition, the shape and intensity of the echoes from hail clouds, the vertical distribution of the various parameters affecting the reflectivity of radar waves, the hail regions in clouds and the topographical influence on the formation of hailstones are discussed.
