Israeli Meteo Radar

The two X-band radar systems in Israel were installed as a part of research projects of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Hydrometeorology lab), the Agricultural Research Organization (Gilat Research Center), the Dead Sea Drainage Authority and the Dead Sea & Arava Research and Development Center with Italian partners from the Politecnico di Torino, the Cereal Research Centre of Foggia and the University of Basilicata. These are ongoing research projects. The presented rainfall data are non calibrated and cannot be considered quantitatively at this stage.
