Table 6 Thresholds of cell component search

From: Thunderstorm identification algorithm research based on simulated airborne weather radar reflectivity data

ThresholdMeaningDefault value
Azimuthal separation (°)The maximum azimuthal separation required for assigning cell segment into the same component5
Segment overlap (km)The minimum slant range overlap required for assigning cell segments to the same component1
Number of segments (unit)The minimum number of cell segments required in a component2
Component area (km2)A set of required minimum areas for a component. There is an area threshold for each reflectivity threshold used to find cell segments1
