pyart.util.cross_section_ppi(radar, target_azimuths, az_tol=None)[source]#

Extract cross sections from a PPI volume along one or more azimuth angles.

  • radar (Radar) – Radar volume containing PPI sweeps from which azimuthal cross sections will be extracted.

  • target_azimuth (list) – Azimuthal angles in degrees where cross sections will be taken.

  • az_tol (float, optional) – Azimuth angle tolerance in degrees. If none the nearest angle is used. If valid only angles within the tolerance distance are considered.


radar_rhi (Radar) – Radar volume containing RHI sweeps which contain azimuthal cross sections from the original PPI volume.
