wradlib.dp.depolarization

wradlib.dp.depolarization(zdr, rho)

Compute the depolarization ration.

Compute the depolarization ration using differential reflectivity \(Z_{DR}\) and crosscorrelation coefficient \(Rho_{HV}\) of a radar sweep ([Kilambi2018], [Melnikov2013], [Ryzhkov2017]).

Parameters:
Returns:

depolarization (numpy.ndarray) – array of depolarization ratios with the same shape as input data, numpy broadcasting rules apply
