Details

The Met Office weather radar network measures the rate at which precipitation (rain, snow or hail) falls over a given area of the British Isles and surrounding waters. The data gathered from these radars are used by weather and flood forecasters to assess the severity and area of possible heavy rainfall and flooding events. The Radarnet IV algorithm development project aimed to improve the quality of the radar rainfall rate data by upgrading the way in which the radar rainfall rate is estimated.
