Remote sensing - meteorological radar

Radar is an acronym for "radio detection and ranging." It is a remote-sensing device that transmits and receives microwave radiation for the purpose of detecting and measuring weather phenomena. Today, many types of radars are used in meteorology, ranging from Doppler radars, which are used to determine air motions (for example, to detect tornadoes), to multiparameter radars, which provide information on the phase (ice or liquid), shape, and size of hydrometeors.

There is three meteorological radar in Croatia operated by the DHMZ: RC Puntijarka, RC Bilogora and RC Osijek. All DHMZ's radars are Doppler radars.
