Title(s):Main Title: Objective Error Quantification for Polarimetric Based Precipitation Estimates using X-Band Radar
Description(s):Abstract: This report will focus on an empirical error estimation making use of the polarimetric twin X-band radar system of Bonn and Jülich. A large overlapping area makes it possible to compare radar measurement volumes that are expected to be in good resemblance to each other. Therefore a quality index scheme is applied and factors that have an effect on the reliability of the measured reflectivity values are investigated. A procedure to find overlapping radar volumes which meet the conditions to have a good resemblance in their measurement values is derived. The remaining differences in measurement values for volumes with a virtually perfect resemblance score is attributed to the empirical measurement error. In the end this procedure is applied as a validation tool and used as an example for the attenuation correction of a specific precipitation event.
