Abstract : The radar methods employed at present for meteorological purposes are based on the relation between the mean power of the reflected signal and the microstructure of the reflecting object. These methods have been quite fruitful for remote measurement of precipitation intensity as well as for solving problems related to the structure of precipitation etc. However, radar methods can be very useful not only for studying the microstructure of clouds and precipitation, but also for investigating the dynamic processes occurring in the free atmosphere. The present paper is devoted to the development of methods which permit the statistical characteristics of the reflected signal to be related to parameters that characterize the dynamic state of the atmosphere.
