Tutor description

At the end of 2005 the MCD (Meteorology and Climatology Directorate) of the Basque Country installed a C-band Dual Doppler weather Radar, Meteor 1500C, from Selex Geamatronik. It is located on the top of a mountain 1000 meters height a.s.l., named Kapildui, in an inland region in the south of the Basque Country. The Basque Country has a complex topography and basins with hydrological characteristics of high flood risk. Sites with these characteristics have a high impact on ground clutter. The impact is higher at lower elevation’s angles and it decreases with elevation, but data from those elevations are required to obtain estimations of precipitation close to the ground. The aim of this work is to achieve a better exploitation in the radar operation. For this purpose, system monitoring tools based on the analysis of raw data have been developed and a clutter map has been implemented.
