dual-wavelength radar

A radar capable of transmitting signals having two wavelengths and measuring separately the echoes at the two wavelengths. Properties of the scattering medium (cloud, precipitation, or the clear air) may be deduced from the difference in reflectivity or the difference in attenuation at the two wavelengths.
