A hydrologists' guide to radar use in various applications

T. Einfalt
This paper is giving guidance on how to answer the question when and where to use which kind of radar data for a given hydrological application. In order to approach this goal, several corner stones are developed to provide guidance for hydrologists. Examples for a successful use of radar data are given. Reasons for the still quite limited routine use of radar data are explained and ways to improve this situation are shown.
