Kevin's Weather: DOPPLER RADAR

wikipedia.org

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

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.
