How to interpret Doppler radar?
Interpreting Doppler Radar Velocities speed shear wind patterns To understand Doppler radial velocity patterns, one first has to consider the geometry of a radar scan. Normally the radar beam is pointed at an elevation angle greater than zero so that the beam, as it moves away from the radar, moves higher and higher above the surface of the earth. Because of this geometry, radar returns originating from targets near the radar represent the low-level wind field, while returns from distant ...
