The KAZRCFRCOR value-added product (VAP) performs several corrections to the ingested KAZR data and creates a significant detection mask for each radar mode. The VAP computes gaseous attenuation as a function of time and radial distance from the radar antenna, based on meteorological conditions, and corrects observed reflectivities for that effect. KAZR reflectivities are also corrected in the antenna “nearfield” range to compensate for the near-field antenna pattern and gain. KAZRCFRCOR also dealiases mean Doppler velocities, to correct velocities whose magnitudes exceed the radar’s Nyquist velocity.
