Short summary
An automated algorithm is developed for routinely retrieving rain rates from the profiling Ka-Band zenith radars. The algorithm is implemented in two steps: higher rain rates are retrieved by using the amount of attenuation in rain layers, while low rain rates are retrieved from the reflectivity-rain rate (Ze-R) relation. Observations collected by rain gauge, disdrometer and scanning precipitation radars during the DYNAMO field campaign at Gan Island are used to validate the proposed approach.
