Serebreny, 1962: Radar precipitation echo
and satellite cloud observations of a maritime cyclone.
In this section, the temporal/spatial variation of the precipitation echo
is represented by a sinusoidal function, and the echo intensity formula is as follows:
The FAA warns that gaps of 20-30 miles between strong precipitation echoes
will likely contain strong turbulence.
As seen from Figure 4, several convective cores immersed within stratiform precipitation echoes
which indicated that the precipitation had become a mixed type at that time.
Gust fronts and thunderstorm-outflow boundaries are not precipitation echoes
, but are clearly seen on the NWS radar image as low-reflectivity returns.
Radar recorded light precipitation echoes
near the accident site.
There will be times where you'll see precipitation echoes
that are due to the beam striking a mountain range.
