pyart.util.cross_section_rhi(radar, target_elevations, el_tol=None)[source]#

Extract cross sections from an RHI volume along one or more elevation angles.

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

  • target_elevations (list) – Elevation angles in degrees where cross sections will be taken.

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


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