wradlib.dp.unfold_phi_vulpiani(phidp, kdp, th=- 20, winlen=7)

Alternative phase unfolding which completely relies on \(K_{DP}\).

This unfolding should be used in oder to iteratively reconstruct \(Phi_{DP}\) and \(K_{DP}\) (see [Vulpiani et al., 2012]).


\(Phi_{DP}\) is assumed to be in the interval [-180, 180] degree. From experience the window for calculation of \(K_{DP}\) should not be too large to catch possible phase wraps.

  • phidp (numpy:numpy.ndarray) – array of floats

  • kdp (numpy:numpy.ndarray) – array of floats

  • th (float) – Threshold th3 in the above citation.

  • winlen (int) – Length of window to fix possible phase over-correction. Normally should take the value of the length of the processing window in the above citation.
