This is a short overview of wradlib capabilities in 45 minutes. Brace yourself.
Reading routines for several radar data formats based on xarray are shown. Data will be read into xarray datasets with easy access for quick analysis and visualisation. Datasets can be written to ODIM_H5 and CfRadial2-like files. Easy multiprocessing using DASK can be facilitated.
Already quite aged the attenuation correction based on the ZPHI-method (see Testud et. al.) is still one of the most used algorithms in weather radar. A quick walkthrough the necessary steps to derive specific attenuation is shown.
Different methods of rain rate retrieval, based eg. on ZH, ZDR, KDP, A, are described.
Exporting cartesian, georeferenced rain retrievals in data format readable by Geoinformation Systems (GIS) is shown.
Here we just mention the capabilities of wradlib and emphasize a few of the new enhancements in recent wradlib versions.
