International Symposium on X-band Weather Radar Network

Japanese

09:30- 17:30, Oct.5 (Fri), 2007
Wadati Memorial Hall, National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention
(3-1 Tennodai, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305-0006, Japan)

X-band (3cm wavelength) weather radar has several advantages compared with C-band (5cm) and S-band (10cm) weather radar: the size of radar system is relatively small and thus the radar system is low cost and easy to transport and setting. Rapid progress of computer and information- communications technologies enable us to process network radar data on real time and distribute them to end users via TV, internet, mobile phone, etc. Success of X-band polarimetric radar revaluated its usefulness for quantitative rainfall estimation. The symposium will focus on the potential of network X-band radar for severe storm studies and disaster mitigation.
