GeorefMethods.dist_from_orbit(bw_sr, freq, re)#

Returns range distances of SR bins (in meters) as seen from the orbit

With SR, we refer to precipitation radars based on space-born platforms such as TRMM or GPM.

  • obj (xarray.Dataset)

  • bw_sr (float) – Beam width of SR in degree.

  • freq (int) – Frequency index of PR.

  • re (float) – earth radius [m]


obj (xarray.Dataset) – obj with added PR bin range distances from SR platform in orbit.
