Equivalent radar reflectivity factor

Dear Colleges,

For evaluation of the WRF model I need to compare high-frequency (1-min) equivalent radar reflectivity factor from the simulations at the radar location. Is it possible to output this variable through the tslist option? For using the NCL conversion script I will have to output 1-min 3D WRF fields which is huge amount of data. The radar reflectivity (lamda = 10 cm)" is already present. Can you suggest other conversion method from available simulated reflectivity to equivalent radar reflectivity factor (Ze)?

Kind regards,
At this time, we don't have any way to output this variable. It may be possible to output through tslist, but you will have to write the code to do so. We have not tried this.
