Short summary
The multifrequency range imaging (RIM) capability of the Chung–Li VHF atmospheric radar is widely evaluated with long-term collected data. Effective corrections of range/time delay and range-weighting function effect for the radar echoes are achieved to improve the performance of RIM. The radar demonstrates its first successful observation of double-layer structures as well as their temporal and spatial variations with time. RIM results with and without significant precipitation are also shown.
