Boundary layer radar
boundary layer radar
see, e.g.,, MST radars). Boundary layer radars are generally characterized by short pulse lengths (less than 100 m) and the ability to make measurements starting at 100–200 m above the radar and extending to at least 2–4 km under typical atmospheric conditions. To satisfy these requirements, boundary layer radars usually operate in the UHF radar band.
