  1. ATMOS 312 RADAR METEOROLOGY Chapter 1: COURSE OVERVIEW

  2. Chapter 2: Electric and Magnetic fields Electromagnetic Propagation Electromagnetic Spectrum Polarization Beam propagation through the atmosphere Anomalous propagation

  3. Chapter 3: Basic components of a radar, Characteristics of a microwave pulse, how microwave pulses are generated, transmitted, and received, quantities describing radar properties.

  4. Chapter 4: Radar displays Plan Position Indicator display Range Height Indicator display

  5. In Chapter 4, We will discuss the appearance of echoes, for example convective and stratiform, banded and not banded, and the reason for these different types of organization

  6. We will also discuss displays of derived quantities and displays from non-conventional radars such as airborne radars

  7. Chapters 5 and 6 Radar equations: Solitary targets Distributed targets Weather targets

  8. Chapter 7: Relationship of Radar Reflectivity to other meteorological quantities Drop size distribution Rainfall Liquid water content

  9. Chapter 8: Doppler radar

  10. Measurements of Phase and the Doppler Dilemma

  11. The Doppler Spectra and its relationship to turbulence and the drop size distribution

  12. Chapter 9: Interpretation of Doppler Radar displays Stratiform echo

  13. Convective storms Detection of rotation, Straight line winds, Microbursts

  14. Chapter 10: Measurement of vertical wind profiles using VAD and wind profilers

  15. Chapter 11: Dual Doppler retrieval of 3D Wind fields in storms

  16. Chapter 12: Radar studies of weather systems Supercells MCSs Snowstorms Hurricanes Frontal Rainbands Lake Effect Snows

  17. Chapter 13: Polarization Diversity Radars

  18. Chapter 14: Advanced Topics Single Doppler retrieval Of horizontal wind fields

  19. Mobile radar systems

  20. Airborne radar systems

  21. Satellite-based radar systems

  22. Thermodynamic retrieval of pressure and thermal fields from three-dimensional Doppler-derived wind fields
