C- band Polarimetric Doppler weather radar (C-DWR)

  • It has instruments to measure rainfall intensity, wind shear and velocity and locate a storm centre and the direction of a tornado or gust front
  • Radar is designed to improve precision in long range weather forecasting and surveillance using the Doppler effect
  • It works by bouncing a microwave signal off a target and analysing how the object’s motion has altered the frequency of the return signal
