Abstract : The possible use of radar in measuring total amount and intensity of liquid precipitation is discussed. The correlation between the magnitude of the radar echo signal and the intensity of precipitation is established. Using a differential calibration method, a radar installation can measure rain intensity for any season of the year. This calibration is applicable to any kind of radar station. It is concluded that in order to record precipitation during any period of the year (for a 100 km radius) it is necessary to have radar transmitters and receivers with a sensitivity 20 times greater than the existing models. The combined use of amplitude analyzers and computers is recommended. (Author)
