  abstract =     "The separation of rain types in convective and
                 stratiform regimes has long been a goal in microwave
                 remote sensing of precipitation research. In this
                 essence, a dual polarised radar based indexing scheme
                 that provides information on convective and stratiform
                 (C/S) rain regimes has been presented in correspondence
                 with advanced microwave scanning radiometer - earth
                 observing system (AMSR-E) GSFC profiling algorithm
                 estimate of convective rain percentage. The dual
                 polarized radar based C/S indexing scheme first
                 retrieves the normalised gamma drop size distribution
                 parameters, median volume drop diameter (D0) and
                 concentration parameter (Nw), from dual polarized radar
                 measurements ZH and ZDR, representing reflectivity and
                 differential reflectivity respectively, by means of the
                 genetic programming approach. Next, the C/S rain index
                 is calculated based on the formulation of an empirical
                 relation in Nw-D0 domain. The scheme has been inspected
                 and applied on measurements from the S-band Chilbolton
                 dual polarised radar. A considerable number of
                 {"}coincident{"} cases from the radar and the AMSR-E
                 observations are investigated. It has been revealed
                 that the dual polarised radar based C/S rain indexing
                 is in a similar pattern with the AMSR-E GSFC profiling
                 algorithm estimate of convective rain percentage.
                 Generally, as C/S rain index value increases, which
                 signifies a stratiform to convective trend, the AMSR-E
                 convective rain percentage also increases.",
