Kevin's Weather: DOPPLER RADAR

wikipedia.org

Doppler radar is named for J.C. Doppler, an Austrian physicist.

Posted: Aug 3, 2019 10:25 AM

In 1842, he determined that sound and other frequencies vary with distance.

In addition to measuring rain and snow, doppler radar can also measure wind movement within a storm.

This is especially helpful in severe weather since wind movement within a storm is directly related to the severity of the storm itself.

Doppler radar is therefore a big help in keeping people informed and safe during severe weather.
