Document Description

This document describes the basic idea of DPR data processing. It was originally written for the
algorithm used in the at-launch version (V03). The algorithm has been modi ed and improved
since then. Although the basic idea of data processing remains the same, the actual ow of
processing, in particular that in the solver module, has changed substantially. As a result, some
part of description in section 3.1 may not be relevant any more.

Changes in the DPR algorithm from V05 to V06

Document Description

The objective of the level 2 DPR algorithms is to generate from the level 1 DPR products radar-only derived meteorological quantities on an instantaneous FOV (field of view) basis. A subset of the results will be used by the level 2 combined radar-radiometer algorithm and the level 3 combined and radar-only products.
