[SVC46-16] MP radar observation of the explosive eruption of Sakurajima on May 10th, 2014
Keywords:volcanic plume, MP radar, polarimetric radar, false echo
In this research, we tested a method of determination of false echo region by correlation coefficient (ρhv), which represents non-homogeneity of meteorological clutters, to the case of explosive eruption of Sakuraijma on May 10th, 2014. Then, we analyzed frequency distributions of polarimetric parameters in the volcanic plume regions and the false echo regions. As a result, it is considered that the false echo region depended on multiple factors.
