    • Forward method for vertical air motion estimation from frequency modulated continuous wave radar rain measurements 

      Salcedo Bosch, Andreu; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Frasier, Steve; Domínguez Pla, Paula (MeteoSwiss (Bundesamt für Meteorologie und Klimatologie MeteoSchweiz), 2022)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Vertically-pointed Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave (FMCW) radar measurements of rain are greatly influenced by strong vertical winds (vertical air motion, VAM) in convective rain scenarios. Particularly, 2nd order ...
    • Numerical solver for vertical air motion estimation 

      Salcedo Bosch, Andreu; Domínguez Pla, Paula; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Frasier, Stephen J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We present preliminary research on a method to estimate Vertical Air Motion (VAM) at a particular height by comparing the measured rain-rate (RR) by a vertically-pointing S-band Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave (FMCW) ...
    • Rainfall radar observations in the U.S. VORTEX-SE campaign: VAM correction of Doppler spectra to improve data quality 

      Domínguez Pla, Paula (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2022-07-13)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      We present research on two methods to estimate the Vertical Air Motion (VAM) velocity by comparing rainfall observations from two different sensing instruments: an S-band radar and a ground-based disdrometer during the ...
    • Terminal Control Of A 2-Link Robot Manipulator 

      De Castro, Josep Maria; Domínguez Pla, Paula; Palau, Nil (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-04)
      Coursework
      Open Access
      This paper describes a comparative evaluation of different controllers for a position regulation 2-link robot manipulator. The equation of motion for two link robot is a nonlinear di erential equation. The controllers, namely ...
