dBZ stands for decibel relative to Z. It is a logarithmic dimensionless technical unit used in radar, mostly in weather radar, to compare the equivalent reflectivity factor (Z) of a radar signal reflected off a remote object (in mm 6 per m 3) to the return of a droplet of rain with a diameter of 1 mm (1 mm 6 per m 3 ).What is the value of 20 DBZ for severe weather?
Value of 20 dBZ is typically the point at which light rain begins. The values of 60 to 65 dBZ is about the level where 1" (2.5 cm) diameter hail can occur. However, a value of 60 to 65 dBZ does not mean that severe weather is occurring at that location. Severe weather may be occurring with values less (or greater)...What does 60 to 65 decibels (DBZ) mean?
The values of 60 to 65 dBZ is about the level where 1" (2.5 cm) diameter hail can occur. However, a value of 60 to 65 dBZ does not mean that severe weather is occurring at that location.How does the NWS WSR-88D work?
During severe weather, the NWS WSR-88D is looking at 14 different elevations every 5 minutes, generating a radar image of each elevation. That's about 3 elevations per minute, or one radar image every 20 seconds! What other operational weather radar can do that??
