Range_to_first_bin quality poor under thick cloud and precipitation
04/30/07 3:14 pm
Implement more robust calculation in R04
The current algorithm uses the maximum return in the vicinity of the surface to obtain the range to the first bin, however under thick cloud and precipitation there usually isn't a reflectivity max. This results in large errors in the Range_to_first_bin field. Downstream products including 2B-GEOPROF, 2B-CWC-RO, and 2B-CWC-RVOD are affected in these areas.
