Kumjian, M.R., O.P. Prat, K.J. Reimel, M. van Lier-Walqui, and H.C. Morrison, 2022: Dual-polarization radar fingerprints of precipitation physics: A review. Remote Sens., 14, no. 15, 3706, doi:10.3390/rs14153706.

This article reviews how precipitation microphysics processes are observed in dual-polarization radar observations. These so-called "fingerprints"; of precipitation processes are observed as vertical gradients in radar observables. Fingerprints of rain processes are first reviewed, followed by processes involving snow and ice. Then, emerging research is introduced, which includes more quantitative analysis of these dual-polarization radar fingerprints to obtain microphysics model parameters and microphysical process rates. New results based on a detailed rain shaft bin microphysical model are presented, and we conclude with an outlook of potentially fruitful future research directions.
