Abstract
This paper presents the analysis of mixed-phase cloud observations in Madrid (Spain) carried out with a 94-GHz ground-based CW-LFM radar system. This analysis is based on the 3D reflectivity profiles and the Doppler spectra. The case of interest occurred on 29th January 2016 when a melting layer at 1 Km, up- and downdrafts and drizzle were detected. This radar can be used to estimate the microphysical composition of the detected mixed-phase clouds.
