HSRL-Radar particle size measurement

For droplets which are small compared to the radar wavelength

but large compared to the lidar wavelength:

Radar scattering cross section = βradar ~ <V2> ~ <D6> ------- Rayleigh scattering

Lidar extinction cross section = βlidar ~ <A> ~ <D2> ------- Geometric optics

Where:

<V2> = average volume squared of the particles

<A> = average projected area of the particles

We can define:

Where:

λradar= radar wavelength

kw = dielectric constant of water

slide8

Assuming a gamma distribution of particle diameters:

Where:

N = number of particles

D = particlle Diameter

Dm= mode diameter

The effective diameter prime can be written as:

Solving for the mode diameter, Dm:

The lidar extinction cross section = 2 * Number density * < Area >

< Mass >

Deff= ---------------

< Area>

The radar weighted fall velocity, <Vrf>:

And the mass weighted fall velocity, <Vmf>:

Where the fall velocity, Vf , is computed from:

Khovostyanov and Curry, JAS May 2005, Vol 62

And the Beard Number, X expressed in terms of particle area, volume and density along with the acceleration of gravity, air density, particle diameter and the dynamic viscosity:

Extinction is derived from the slope of the molecular return

Multiple scattering reduces apparent extinction
