the right slope S r of the radar Doppler maximum peak are also investigated. While σ , γ , and κ have the advantage that they are not influenced by radar calibration, they are strongly influenced by turbulence. Therefore, the retrieval implemented in this study provides not only microphysical properties—such as particle-size distribution, mass–size relation, and cross section–area relation—but also kinematic variables, such as vertical air motion and turbulent spectral broadening.

)ABSTRACT This paper discusses some of the uncertainties that influence kinematic trajectory calculations. The interpolationerrors due to different interpolation schemes are examined by degrading high-resolution wind fields from anumerical weather prediction model with respect to space and time. Under typical circumstances, the greatesterrors are due to temporal interpolation, followed by horizontal and vertical interpolation. Relative errors inthe vertical wind are higher than those in the

-to-moderate precipitation. The w field ( Fig. 11c ) shows consistent features with stratiform precipitation, including small magnitudes (<2 m s −1 ) throughout most of the domain. Updrafts are dominant above the bright band. Below this level, downdrafts are prominent, but a clear exception of positive w values occurs toward the beginning of the domain and at 4-km altitude. These exceptions, which are inconsistent with typical stratiform kinematics, are likely a result of errors in the fall speed correction and
