- pyart.retrieve.texture_of_complex_phase(radar, phidp_field=None, phidp_texture_field=None)#
Calculate the texture of the differential phase field.
Calculate the texture of the real part of the complex differential phase field
radar (Radar) – Radar object from which to .
phidp_field (str, optional) – Name of field in radar which contains the differential phase shift. None will use the default field name in the Py-ART configuration file.
phidp_texture_field (str, optional) – Name to use for the differential phase texture field metadata. None will use the default field name in the Py-ART configuration file.
texture_field (dict) – Field dictionary containing the texture of the real part of the complex differential phase.
