Abstract

•Ka band radar observations at three tropical locations are studied.•Large negative gradient is observed in VPR above 20mm/h rain rate.•Rain drop evolution mechanism is also studied.•Significant variations of radar VPR is observed at lower 2km height.•Results will be helpful in interpretation of GPM data over tropic.
