Definition: for an electromagnetic wave incident from a given direction, a quantity which characterizes the power back-scattered by hydrometeors existing in the atmosphere

NOTE – For homogeneous rain precipitation, the radar reflectivity factor is given by the expression:

Z= N i D i 6 V MathType@MTEF@5@5@+=feaagCart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHXgaruavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgaruWqVvNCPvMCG4uz3bqee0evGueE0jxyaibaieYdi9WrpeeC0lXdi9qqqj=hEeeu0lXdbba9frFj0xb9Lqpepeea0xd9s8qiYRWxGi6xij=hbba9q8aq0=yq=He9q8qiLsFr0=vr0=vr0db8meaabaGacmGadiWaaiWabiabciaafiaakeaacaWGAbGaeyypa0ZaaSaaaeaadaaeabqaaiaad6eadaWgaaWcbaGaamyAaaqabaGccaWGebWaa0baaSqaaiaadMgaaeaacaqG2aaaaaqabeqaniabggHiLdaakeaacaWGwbaaaaaa@4308@

where Ni is the number of particles of diameter Di in a volume V. The factor Z is generally expressed in mm6/m3.
