From Glossary of Meteorology


Any of several kinds of analyses that removes or attempts to remove the effects of convolution from measured data.

In radar, deconvolution processing may be performed on reflectivity data to remove the smoothing that arises from averaging over the pulse volume, on Doppler spectra to remove spreading by turbulence, or to improve range resolution by compensating for the effect of the transmitted pulse length. All such applications attempt to restore resolution that is lost in the process of measurement.
