Abstract
The effects of the convective rain on various atmospheric parameters have been investigated at Kolkata (22.57°N, 88.37°E), India, during pre-monsoon and monsoon period of 2013. Various parameters like cloud base height and depth, liquid water content, rain rate and rain drop size distribution (DSD) are observed concurrently. The atmospheric electric field measured with an electric field monitor and the attenuation and depolarisation of satellite signals measured by a Ku-band receiving system are also studied during rain events. The instability indices obtained from radiometric measurements and the rain height profiles from micro rain radar are used to classify rain into two types, namely, convective and stratiform. The signatures of rain events on multi-technique observations are studied to indicate the various aspects of convective processes at a tropical location. © 2014 IEEE.
