Vertical development of precipitation echoes from cumulus clouds near Calcutta during the post-monsoon season
Vertical development of precipitation echoes from cumulus clouds near Calcutta during the post-monsoon season of 1956 was studied by using a Decca Type.41 3-cm radar installed at the Meteorological Office at Dum Dum airport. It has been shown that the origin of the first precipitation echoes were below the freezing level in most cases. The rate of growth of the precipitation echoes was found to be comparable with that found in USA.A condensation coalescence mechanism has been suggested for the formation of rain from these clouds.
