Abstract

Several meteorological services across the world are using networks of weather surveillance radars with the aim of advancing timely monitoring and quantification of precipitation as well as increasing the forecast skills through data assimilation into numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. This contribution offers an overview of the most relevant applications of weather radars in the context of operational use of such systems. The applications covered span from algorithms to ensure sufficient radar data quality, to estimate near surface rain, to perform hydrometeor identification and recognize key in-cloud process of volcanic and atmospheric extreme events.
