WS100: How does the Doppler Radar Measurement Principle of the WS100 work?

The 24 GHz Microwave Doppler Radar works with the radar reflection method and measures the precipitation quantity or precipitation intensity by means of the correlation of drop size and velocity below the sensor.

Inside the the smart sensor a drop Size distribution matrix enables to calculate intensity of precipitation and to determine type of precipitation according fundamental meteorological relationships (Gunn-Kinzer and Hobbs and Locatelli).
