A Radar rainfall preprocessing, calibration, forecasting, catchment averaging and display system for hydrological use.

IH has recently integrated its radar rainfall preprocessing, calibration, forecasting and catchment averaging procedures into a single software package. HYRAD employs these procedures as the Radar Hydrology Kernel of a workstation-based radar data reception processing and a Windows 3.1 display system.

The system supports the following functions:

For VAX/VMS (or Unix) applications a client-server architecture is used in which the Radar Hydrology Kernel and data reception and archiving software runs on a VAX/VMS or Unix machine. A PC running Windows 3.1 or later is used to support the Graphical User Interface and visualisation facilities.
