Phase process using a LP method .
radar (Radar) – Input radar.
offset (float) – Reflectivity offset in dBz.
debug (bool, optional) – True to print debugging information.
self_const (float, optional) – Self consistency factor.
low_z (float, optional) – Low limit for reflectivity. Reflectivity below this value is set to this limit.
high_z (float, optional) – High limit for reflectivity. Reflectivity above this value is set to this limit.
min_phidp (float, optional) – Minimum Phi differential phase.
min_ncp (float, optional) – Minimum normal coherent power.
min_rhv (float, optional) – Minimum copolar coefficient.
fzl (float, optional) – Maximum altitude.
sys_phase (float, optional) – System phase in degrees.
overide_sys_phase (bool, optional) – True to use sys_phase as the system phase. False will calculate a value automatically.
nowrap (int or None, optional) – Gate number to begin phase unwrapping. None will unwrap all phases.
really_verbose (bool, optional) – True to print LPX messaging. False to suppress.
LP_solver (‘pyglpk’ or ‘cvxopt’, ‘cylp’, or ‘cylp_mp’, optional) – Module to use to solve LP problem. Default is ‘pyglpk’.
refl_field, ncp_field, rhv_field, phidp_field, kdp_field (str, optional) – Name of field in radar which contains the horizonal reflectivity, normal coherent power, copolar coefficient, differential phase shift, and differential phase. A value of None for any of these parameters will use the default field name as defined in the Py-ART configuration file.
unf_field (str, optional) – Name of field which will be added to the radar object which will contain the unfolded differential phase. Metadata for this field will be taken from the phidp_field. A value of None will use the default field name as defined in the Py-ART configuration file.
window_len (int, optional) – Length of Sobel window applied to PhiDP field when prior to calculating KDP.
proc (int, optional) – Number of worker processes, only used when LP_solver is ‘cylp_mp’.
coef (float, optional) – Exponent linking Z to KDP in self consistency. kdp=(10**(0.1z))*coef
reproc_phase (dict) – Field dictionary containing processed differential phase shifts.
sob_kdp (dict) – Field dictionary containing recalculated differential phases.
