Quantitative precipitation estimation provided by weather radars plays a vital role in many hydrometeorological applications. The complexity of all the factors that contribute, on the one hand, to rainfall processes, and on the other hand, to the behavior of the energy beam emitted by the radar in its traverse through the atmosphere, mean that current estimates generally differ from the precipitation observed on surface.
