z_to_r_enhanced(z, algo='plain', **kwargs)¶
Calculates rainrates from radar reflectivities using the enhanced three-part Z-R-relationship 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 DX-Data 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 2-D array Returns:
