Z-R ConversionsΒΆ

Module zr takes care of transforming reflectivity into rainfall rates and vice versa

z_to_r Conversion from reflectivities to rain rates.
r_to_z Calculates reflectivity from rain rates using a power law Z/R relationship Z = a*R**b
z_to_r_enhanced Calculates rainrates from radar reflectivities using the enhanced three-part Z-R-relationship used by the DWD (as of 2009)
