Classic text by the biggest names in the business. A must read if you are serious about working in the weather radar area. Well written with lots of data.

Format: Paperback
As the arthors stated in the Preface, the book is intended as a reference source for academics and professionals interested in the theory and applications of Doppler Radar. It is not one for simply interpreting the display.

I am a graduate student, but a beginner for this subject. After I read fist four chapters, I gained an interest in radar for weather surveillance. This is a multidisciplinary subject and it is organized very well in this book. I think this book must be the best book for this subject.
