S-PolKa: S-band/Ka-band Dual Polarization, Dual Wavelength Doppler Radar

NCAR/EOL's S-PolKa radar is an advanced, transportable, ground-based dual-polarimetric, dual-wavelength, Doppler weather radar. S-PolKa transmits 10 cm wavelength (S-band) and 0.86 cm wavelength (Ka-band) simultaneously with matched beamwidths and range resolution. The dual-polarimetric capabilities of S-PolKa lead to improved precipitation estimates over what is available on conventional radars, as well as real-time identification of hydrometeor types. The absolute phase measurements from S-PolKa can be used to compute and monitor in real time the low-level humidity...
