this is a new technology of weather detection. Using this technology, microwave radio waves are sent out of the antenna and they get deflected by the clouds, water particles in air etc. the reflected back signals are caught and the data from signals are decoded by using computers.

Barry's Response - Here's a short and sweet description of weather radar. Thank you, K.

One of the basic data processing functions used to interpret weather radar output is integrating output from several scans into one useful scan. It's called the Constant Altitude Position Plan Indicator.

I'll start with a position plan indicator PPI: The radar apparatus scans the nearby sky and points upward at a specific angle while it does so. The images are mapped out on the surface of an upside down cone with its point at the radar station after a full spin. The further a piece of data is from the radar, the higher its altitude. We'd rather see a...

Constant Altitude Position Plan Indicator CAPPI - You can take a horizontal slice across all the cones if you get readings from multiple angles on each cone, and each cone contributes a concentric circle across the horizontal plane, like tree stump rings. A composite radar image can be created at any altitude using data from each cone. This display is more useful for many applications.

Here is a more complete explanation of radar. It's not perfect, but it's functional.

Search this site for more information now. For now, lets elaborate on this for fun...

We are about to embark on a thrilling journey into the world of meteorological marvels, where the wonders of radar reveal the secrets of our ever-changing skies.

Let me explain the wonders of radar!

Imagine a dance of invisible messengers, microwave radio waves. They burst forth from their antenna abode like a cosmic symphony and venture into the great unknown of our atmosphere. Pay attention, because their path isn't straight!

Clouds, those ethereal dancers of the sky! Our microwave waves cross the celestial stage, and these cloud envoys decide to interject. Clouds command our waves like a conductor controlling an orchestra. Dutifully deferential, these waves change their course and bounce off the clouds.

Behold the minuscule moisture droplets suspended like fairy lights! The waves encounter these water particles with unyielding determination, creating a symphony of reflections. Those reflections are whispers of the elements, carrying tales of their encounters in the sky back to us.

But don't worry, pupils, the saga isn't over yet! Despite being faint and elusive, the radar receiver captures the reflections with finesse. It turns whispers into data points and echoes by listening intently.

Prepare yourself for the true sorcery - the world of computers! The electronic conjurers can decipher the echoes, unravel the intricate narratives spun by the bouncing waves. The algorithms sift through the echoes, deciphering their tales of cloud, moisture, and movement.

And there you have it, an enchanting tale of microwave messengers, cloud choreography, and computational magic! It's radar, my young apprentices, that weaves together the unseen threads of our atmosphere. We can see the skies with it, predict storms, foresee showers, and decipher the language of the skies. Explore this technological wonder with newfound reverence and understanding, my curious minds!

This is a very common to hear about the weather condition today is hot or rain going to happen, but no one has information how they forecast about the weather more technology used for making this kind of forecast.

From Barry - Meteorologists use advanced instruments and technology to measure and forecast weather. Satellite imagery, radar, and computer models simulate atmospheric conditions. Meteorologists can forecast the weather by combining and analyzing this data.

Weather forecasts are made with advanced computer models and satellite imagery. Temperature, humidity, wind speed, pressure, and other data are used in these models to create a detailed picture of the atmosphere and predict what the weather will be like.

This system definitely deserves
by: Darry

This system definitely deserves some attention. If we could install systems like that all over our country we could have so much more control in terms of weather forecasts. It shouldn't be that difficult to use, after all any technology can be explain if you're willing to learn.

From Barry - Many industries rely on weather forecasts, including agriculture, aviation, and the military. Forecasts can help you prepare for storms, floods, and other natural disasters. We can make better decisions and protect people and property by having a reliable forecasting system.

Everyone familiar with grad school admissions may explain which engaging in graduate student school is just not because basic because using a cutoff GPA or perhaps GRE report.

From Barry - It takes strong academic performance, research experience, letters of recommendation, and a compelling personal statement. When evaluating an applicant, admissions committees look at all these things. Extracurricular activities and other unique experiences can also make an applicant stand out.

What benefits?
by: asvd

It looks cool to see the picture. but I like know what benefits we can get from this new technology when comparing traditional one?. Also how much cost it takes generate microwave signals? But India is moving up with these new technologies

From Barry - With this new technology, you can get more accurate data faster. It's also cheaper, since it uses less energy to generate microwave signals. Also, the signals aren't affected by weather or terrain, so they're more reliable. For the whole world.

In India for instance, they're investing in research and development of this technology. The country will be able to move forward in terms of communication and connectivity, giving its citizens new opportunities.

This article was very interesting. I did not know that there was new technologial weather detection. Another radar is a good thing I think

From Barry - As technology advances, meteorologists can detect weather patterns more accurately and in a more timely manner, so they can better predict the weather and warn the public. It can save lives and protect property.

We hope.
