Detecting sand-dust storms using a wind-profiling radar
Description: Sand-dust storm is a type of disastrous weather, typically occurring in arid and semi-arid climates. This study selected a region in the hinterlands of the Taklimakan Desert, called the Tazhong region, as the experimental area to quantitatively estimate the particle concentrations of sand-dust storms using the boundary layer wind-profiling radar. They thoroughly studied the radar echo signals and reflectivity factor features during the sand-dust storms. [Source: Journal of Arid Land]
