Title: Backscattering enhancement for Marshall-Palmer distributed rains for a W-band nadir-pointing radar with a finite beam width
Authors: Kobayashi, Satoru
Tanelli, Simone
Im, Eastwood

Keywords: multiple scattering

Issue Date: Jul-2005

Citation: International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium
Abstract: In this paper, we expand the previous theory to be applied to a generic drop size distribution with spheroidal raindrops including spherical raindrops. Results will be used to discuss the multiple scattering effects on the backscatter measurements acquired by a W-band nadir-pointing radar.
