Short summary
Wind turbines in the line of sight of a weather radar can have a negative impact on the quality of the radar's measurements. Wind turbine echoes have proven difficult to filter due to their complex and time-varying nature. In this work we present recordings of high-resolution low-level data from a Swedish weather radar. A characteristic and robust signature from wind turbines is found. A simple wind turbine filter is presented and applied to the recorded data.
