Abstract : The radar reflectivity is examined in relation to the turbulent and electric state of various types of clouds. The mean statistical data are analyzed. It is shown that the magnitude of the reflectivity of convective clouds can be used as an indirect criterion of the degree of turbulence and the thunderstorm danger of the cloud. (Author)
