CHU, Zhigang et al. A novel velocity dealiasing algorithm for S-Band weather radars. Atmósfera [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.1, pp.1-13. ISSN 0187-6236.

Noise, especially continuous noise, is an important factor that affects the velocity dealiasing of Doppler weather radars. A challenge in the design of dealiasing algorithm is how to effectively suppress noise. Therefore, a novel anti-noise dealiasing algorithm (AND) for Doppler velocities was proposed in this paper. In comparison with traditional methods, the AND utilizes a new separation-restoration noise suppression scheme, which can significantly reduce the interference of noise on dealiasing without losing data. This algorithm utilizes three fitting curves as references to correct ambiguous echoes, and it can further suppress residual noise and dynamically match wind fields at varying scales. The AND has been applied to the CINRAD-SA network of operational radars in China, achieving a better performance on noisy echoes, isolated echoes, typhoon echoes, and tornado echoes.

Keywords : Doppler weather radar; data quality control; continuous noise; continuous noise suppression; velocity dealiasing.
