Short summary
This study provides a first analysis of rainfall observations and related microphysical processes during the HOPE campaign, which will benefit future studies on the evaluation and improvement of climate models within the HD(CP)2 framework. The results conveyed in this study confirm that polarimetric radars have the capability to validate weather and climate models with respect to rainfall estimation and the ongoing microphysical processes.
