Abstract

Millimeter wave radars are considered primarily as cloud radars due to their high sensitivity on weak targets such as shallow cloud. A unique application of millimeter wave radars is presented. This application capitalizes on the use of Mie scattering peculiarities as a means to identify raindrops of a given size in a dropsize distribution.
