A simple and fast texture-based technique for the removal of residual ground clutter is presented. Its main advantages are that it is easy to implement (both for polar and Cartesian data) and can be applied a posteriori after any other method of clutter removal has been applied. The performances of the technique during clear-sky and rainy conditions are analyzed for a 180×150 km2 complex-orography region, using data from a non-Doppler and a Doppler radar (for both, approximately 50% of the clear-sky clutter shows average reflectivity greater than 13 dBZ). In the case of the non-Doppler data, the texture-based code is used after a prestored static map: it is absolutely necessary and leads to excellent results. In the case of the Doppler data, the technique can be applied with satisfactory results, even after a recent approach, which, in addition to a Doppler velocity test, combine all the available information concerning radar echoes.

Abstract

A simple and fast texture-based technique for the removal of residual ground clutter is presented. Its main advantages are that it is easy to implement (both for polar and Cartesian data) and can be applied a posteriori after any other method of clutter removal has been applied. The performances of the technique during clear-sky and rainy conditions are analyzed for a 180×150 km2 complex-orography region, using data from a non-Doppler and a Doppler radar (for both, approximately 50% of the clear-sky clutter shows average reflectivity greater than 13 dBZ). In the case of the non-Doppler data, the texture-based code is used after a prestored static map: it is absolutely necessary and leads to excellent results. In the case of the Doppler data, the technique can be applied with satisfactory results, even after a recent approach, which, in addition to a Doppler velocity test, combine all the available information concerning radar echoes.
