Simultaneous Differential Polarimetric Measurements and Co-Polar Correlation Coefficient Measurement

Metadata Updated: August 28, 2014

A polarimetric Doppler weather radar system which allows measurement of linear orthogonal polarimetric variables without a switch by using simultaneous transmission of horizontally and vertically polarized waves. This is accomplished by splitting the transmitted power into two waveguides and combining them with an orthomode coupler at the antenna feed. Thus, in general the transmitted polarization is elliptical but with equal amount of power in horizontal and vertical polarization. On reception, the power is divided, at the orthomode coupler, into linear horizontal and vertical components. These components are processed and combined to yield Doppler and polarimetric information about storm structure.
