6 2 Vol. 71, No. 1, January 1990 parts. The first deals at some length with the radar parameters and their system implications, their rela- equation. Its first chapter presents the radar equation tionship to higher-level system configurations from in "classical form/' including a derivation of the me- which the radar requirements evolve, and to subsys- tems where radar performance expectations dictate teorological radar equation. A second, quite lengthy (124-page) chapter presents a formal treatment of the their basic requirements." The book does not deal radar equation based on Maxwell's equations, with with velocity measurements and the principles of particular emphasis on antenna theory and applica- Doppler radar. Also, most of the material about at- tions. Finally, another chapter discusses the radar tenuation is related to high-frequency (millimeter equation from the point of view of Gaussian func- wavelength) radars. The material about the atmo- tions. sphere is itself rather cursory, with the exception of A chapter presenting some basic information about a rather lengthy section about fractal models of rain- fall patterns, which is rather speculative. The topic the structure and composition of the atmosphere pre- of differential reflectivity measurements is also ab- cedes the second main section, titled
