Animated radar images



This CD-ROM contains the following movies. As the file format is animated GIF file, images are viewable by a standard internet browsers or by an adequate viewing software. Original images were divided into 4 images in Movies 1, 2, and 3 because of the limitation of the memory and speed of PC.
 
 

Movie 1   Horizontal cross section scanning of snow bands: (a) radar reflectivity, (b) Doppler velocity, (c) spectrum width, and (d) iso-surface of 13 dBZ.

Movie 2   Vertical cross section scanning of snow bands: (a) radar reflectivity, (b) Doppler velocity, (c) spectrum width, and (d) iso-surface of 13 dBZ. The vertical cross section moves parallel to and perpendicular to band orientation.

Movie 3   Vertical cross section scanning of snow bands: (a) radar reflectivity, (b) Doppler velocity, (c) spectrum width, and (d) iso-surface of 13 dBZ. The vertical cross section rotates around the vertical axis at the radar.

Movie 4   Time sequence of snow bands. (a) Oblique view. (b) Top view.

Movie 5   Generation of "precipitation roll" (Wakimoto, 1982) associated with snowstorm outflows.

Movie 6    Multiple surge-like echoes.
