Preliminary Results from the Fielding of a Disparate Triad of Mobile Doppler Radars to Study Severe Convective Storms

Owing to the strong impact they have and to their relatively small size, severe convective storms and tornadoes have been worthy objects of studies using mobile Doppler radars. Since one size does not fit all, a number of different radars have been used, each having a different objective. A W-band radar has been used to probe tornado structure because it requires a relatively small antenna to achieve very high spatial resolution (e.g. Bluestein et al. 2007a). X-band radars have been used to provide storm-scale views of convective storms and, when close enough and when large enough, details of tornado structure, with much less limitation from attenuation than radars at W-band. A polarimetric, X-band radar has been used to distinguish between rain and debris in tornadoes (Bluestein et al. 2007b). It can also be used to distinguish among hydrometeor types.
