[AOS24-06] Automatic Detection of Spurious Differential Phase
Keywords:Mirai, polarimetric radar, quality control
A simple algorithm has been developed to automatically detect spurious differential phases. The algorithm utilizes the relationship between radar reflectivity and specific differential phase. The ability of the algorithm is tested by using the data from the measurements of the polarimetric radar on board the research vessel Mirai. It is found that the algorithm can effectively ascertain the data quality of differential phases. The possible application of the algorithm for the quality control of polarimetric radar measurements is discussed.
