Title(s):Main Title: Objective error quanti cation for polarimetric based precipitation estimates for di erent time and space scales using X-band radar
Description(s):Abstract: Although radar polarimetry technique ripened exceedingly in the last decade, the uncertainties of radar quantitative precipitation estimation have not yet been adequately characterized. The additional information from the polarimetric moments opens the opportunity to reduce these uncertainties via the usage of polarimetric-based estimators. In this study the ve di erent estimators R(Zh), R(Zh;ZDR), R(KDP ), R(KDP ;ZDR) and R(Av) according to the ZPHI method (Testud et al. (2000)) were applied in a crosscomparison to quantify the speci c errors related to the di erent rainfall estimations. For this purpose three approaches are focused: 1. an empirical comparison between radar estimates and independent observations, 2. error propagation modeling on the retrieval algorithms and 3. forward modeling of polarimetric variables basing on known droplet spectra.
