Webinar: Calibration of Cloud Radars with OTT Parsivel² Disdrometer Data

Radars are indispensable instruments for the observation of the spatio-temporal distribution of precipitation and their manufacturers pay careful attention to the calibration and quality control of radar components. So why the calibration of cloud radar systems is necessary? And what is the best way to do it? Watch this webinar where our experts Dr. Stefan Kneifel and Kurt Nemeth discuss the following points:

  • OTT Parsivel² – Premium Disdrometer and enhanced Precipitation Identifier
  • Factors and implication that influence quality of radar data and its quantified precipitation estimate
  • Are disdrometers suitable for calibration of cloud radars – research results from Meteorology University of Cologne
