## Presentation Transcript

Radars Sandra Cruz-Pol Professor Electrical and Computer Engineering Department University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez CASA- Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere 2006

### Slide3:

The frequency of the em wave used depends on the application. Some frequencies travel through clouds with virtually no attenuation. ALL em waves move at the speed of light

### Slide6:

hello Compare to: Acoustic Echo-location

### Slide7:

hello Acoustic Echo-location

### Slide8:

hello distance Acoustic Echo-location

### Slide9:

Hi !! t = 2 x range / speed of sound Example: range = 150 m Speed of sound ≈ 340 meters/second t = 2 X 150 / 340 ≈ 1 second

### Target Range:

Target Range time t = 2 x range / speed of light measure t, then determine Range Example: t = .001 sec Speed of light = c = 3x108 meters/second Range = .001 x 3x108 / 2 = 150,000 m = 150 km Tx Rx

### Thresholding:

Thresholding time Measure time elapsed between transmit pulse and target crossing a threshold voltage. Then calculate range. Don’t “report back” any information from targets that don’t cross the threshold Threshold Voltage

### Range-Gating:

Range-Gating time Range Gates

### Slide14:

We will see that Radars work by… Transmitting microwave pulses…. and measuring the … Time delay (range) Amplitude Frequency Polarization … of the microwave echo in each range gate

### Target Size:

Target Size time Scattered wave amplitude conveys size of the scattering objects. Measure amplitude, determine size.

Target Radial Velocity Frequency ft Frequency ft+ fd

Target Radial Velocity Frequency ft Frequency ft+ fd

### Zero Velocity for “Crossing Targets”:

Zero Velocity for “Crossing Targets” Frequency ft Frequency ft+ fd Doppler Frequency

### Target Spatial Orientation:

Target Spatial Orientation Polarization Pt Polarization Ps Large Drops Small Drops

### Example: Weather Echoes:

Example: Weather Echoes Microwave Transmitter Receiver

### Echo versus Range (range profile):

Echo versus Range (range profile) time Transmitted Pulse #1 Cloud Echo

### Slide22:

In summary, radars work by… Transmitting microwave pulses…. and measuring the … … of the microwave echo in each range gate Time delay (range) Amplitude (size) Frequency (radial velocity) Polarization (spatial orientation & “oblateness”)

Colors in radar images The colors in radar images indicate the amount of rain falling in a given area. Each raindrop reflects the energy from the radar. Therefore, the more raindrops in a certain area, the brighter the color in the radar image of that area. The bright red color around the eye of a hurricane radar image indicates the area of heaviest rainfall. The green colored area has a moderate amount of rain, while the blue areas represent the least amount of rain. Hurricane Andrew, 1992

### Slide25:

0.1 mm/hr 1 mm/hr 15 mm/hr 100 mm/hr >150 mm/hr QPE – Quantitative Precipitation Estimation

### Slide28:

### NWS has ~150 NEXrad radars in US; 1 in Cayey, PR:

CASA radars will complement NWS radars Water spout at Mayaguez Beach, PR- Sept 2005 –unseen by NEXRAD

Radar "Beamwidth" The geometry of the dish and a few other factors help determine the pulse volume, which can be specified in degrees. NEXRAD radar sends discrete pulses (and spends 99.57% of the time listening for return echoes) Meteorologists like to use the convenient terms "beam" and "beamwidth" to describe where the radar is pointing and the effective resolution of the air being sampled.

### Antennas:

Antennas Antenna is a transition passive device between the air and a transmission line that is used to transmit or receive electromagnetic waves.

### Antenna Beamwidth:

Antenna Beamwidth radians D is the antenna diameter λ is the wavelength of signal in air Tradeoff: Small wavelengths (high frequencies) = small antennas But small wavelengths attenuate more

### Beamwidth Size vs. Object Size:

Beamwidth Size vs. Object Size Beamwidth What can a radar see? Beamwidth is one consideration. Earth curvature and height of the feature is another (addressed on the next page). For the moment, we'll keep the problem in two dimensions and ignore height above ground. The geometry is an isosceles triangle. Be sure to note which beamwidth you are calculating for (i.e. 1 degree).

### Beamwidth:

Beamwidth 0.7 mi 1.4 mi 2.1 mi 2.8 mi

### Object Size :

Object Size How wide and tall are various things we want to see? Width of Meteorological Objects (i.e. Storms, Tornadoes)

### Earth Curvature:

Earth Curvature Fill in the table with values you calculate       0.17 mi 0.35 mi 0.52 mi 0.70 mi 7 mi 16 mi 23 mi 31 mi
