Caption: Radar image of a storm. Computer screen showing the output from a Doppler radar, a system used by meteorologists to monitor storms. The different colours represent different intensities of rainfall. A scale is shown on the right. Values of up to 30 DBZ indicate light rainfall and between 30 and 60 DBZ indicate heavy rainfall, whereas anything above 60 DBZ is likely to be hail. The direction and speed of wind can also be derived from changes in frequency of the radio waves received by the Doppler radar. Forecasters use radar to advise people of approaching adverse weather and for meteorological research. Photographed in Kansas, USA.
