Title(s):Main Title: Attenuation and differential attenuation of the five cm wavelength radiation in melting hail
Description(s):Abstract: Presented are quantitative estimates of specific attenuation and specific differential attenuation of 5 cm wavelength radiation (C band) obtained by comparison with measurements at 10 cm wavelength (S band) which are much less affected by attenuation. The data originated from two almost collocated radars in central Oklahoma. To avoid biases in estimates, the slopes with respect to range of differences in reflectivities and differential reflectivities are assumed to represent the specific attenuations. Observations on a day with no reports of hail on the ground and on a day with large hail are contrasted. A simple one-dimensional model of melting hail is used to qualify these observations. Examples of volumetric fields of the polarimetric variables obtained at the two wavelengths are presented to illustrate that much can be learned about size, orientation, and phase of hydrometeors over volumes that play a role in precipitation formation.
