contour mode


Normal display.
Iso-echo display.
A circuit in weather radar that reverses signal strength above a specified intensity level. In this mode, there is a void on the scope where echoes are most intense, and a turbulent cloud area appears as either dark or colored. The width of this void is indicative of a rain or turbulence gradient. Also called a contour mode.
