In preparation for the introduction of NEXRAD in the USA, a "sectorized hybrid scan' has been developed for enhancing precipitation processing by radar. The sectorized hybrid uses data from the four low tilts of the radar volume scan to develop a composite, or hybrid, scan. The choice of the tilt to be used at a particular location depends upon the range and altitude of the beam above the terrain. This processing has also provided for the production of regional radar coverage maps. -Authors
