Title: What Conventional Radar Detects
Concept: The signal retruined to the radar is a function of the target and the wavelength used.
Detail: Using conventional weather radars, clouds are not visible. The droplets in a cloud have a million times less water than a typical rain drop, and therefore reflect less radiation. Light snow flurries and light drizzle drops are also usually too small to be detected by routine meteorological radars. Most other solid object in the atmosphere will produce a return. Airplanes produce a momentary blip on the radar screen, as will flocks of birds, occasionally swarms of insects and, of course, any solid obstacle such as tall building or a mountain that the beam may intercept. The fact that radar beams cannot pass through mountains makes radars somewhat less useful in the mountainous areas of the western U.S. The current generation of NEXRAD radars are many times more sensitive than those employed in the past, and can be used to detect much lighter snow than previously, and even dense smoke from large fires.
