iRAD-2019 will primarily debate on and encourages submission of abstracts in the following topics:

1. Radar calibration, quality control techniques, operational radar networks.
2. Applications of radar data in Meteorology, Hydrology and Urban planning.
3. Microphysical studies and Dual-polarization observations.
4. Severe weather observations and storm electrification.
5. Quantitative precipitation estimation.
6. Millimeter wavelength radars for cloud observations.
7. Wind profiling radars.
8. Use of radar data in NWP models.

To train young researchers and students in the field of Radar Meteorology, iRAD2019 organizes one-day short-term course
on “Weather radars for Microphysics of clouds and precipitation”.
