Abstract
ACCURATE GROUND-BASED MEASUREMENTS ARE REQUIRED IN DEVELOPING SATELLITE RAINFALL RETRIEVAL ALGORITHMS. IT IS PROPOSED TO INVESTIGATE A NEW RADAR RAIN MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUE WHICH UNLIKE ALL PREVIOUS METHODS MEASURES THE RAIN MASS DIRECTLY AND IS INSENSITIVE TO THE RAINDROP SIZE DISTRIBUTION, RAINDROP SHAPES, AND ATTENUATION. IN PHASE I WE WILL: COLLECT THE FIRST MEASUREMENTS EVER OF THIS NEW QUANTITY; INVESTIGATE ALTERNATIVE MEASUREMENTS SCHEMES; INVESTIGATE THE SIGNAL STATISTICS OF THE PARAMETER; AND COMPARE WITH COMPLIMENTARY POLARIZATION MEASUREMENTS.
