About the Authors
  • This work provides a detailed introduction to the principles of Doppler and polarimetric radar, focusing in particular on their use in the analysis of weather systems. The authors first discuss underlying topics such as electromagnetic scattering, polarization, and wave propagation. They then detail the engineering aspects of pulsed Doppler polarimetric radar, before examining key applications in meteorology and remote sensing. The book is aimed at graduate students of electrical engineering and atmospheric science as well as practitioners involved in the applications of polarimetric radar.

    • Unique treatment of all aspects of coherent polarimetric radar specifically for meteorological applications
    • Includes a wealth of examples from working radar systems to illustrate the theory
    • Provides step-by-step derivations of important results

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book will be of great use to graduate students of electrical engineering and atmospheric science as well as to practitioners involved in the meteorological application of radar systems." INSPEC

    "The book is thorough in its coverage and goes into substantial mathematical detail...the authors have done a very good job of bringing a lot of complex material together into a well organized and clearly written book that should be of value to researchers in this area." American Meteorological Society

    "Polarimetric Doppler Weather Radar is the first to be devoted entirely to the subject of polarimetric weather radar... the authors have done an excellent job of presenting this challenging material...Polarimetic Doppler Weather Radar is well worth the $130 price tag." James D. Belville, EOS
