wradlib.zr.
z_to_r_enhanced
(z, algo='plain', **kwargs)¶ Calculates rainrates from radar reflectivities using the enhanced threepart ZRrelationship used by the DWD (as of 2009)
To be used with polar representations so that one dimension is cyclical. i.e. z should be of shape (nazimuths, nbins) –> the first dimension is the cyclical one. For DWD DXData z’s shape is (360,128).
Parameters: z (a float or an array of floats) – Corresponds to reflectivity Z in mm**6/m**3 must be a 2D array Returns:  r (
numpy.ndarray
) – r  array of shape z.shape  calculated rain rates  si (
numpy.ndarray
) – si  array of shape z.shape  calculated shower index for control purposes. May be omitted in later versions
 r (
