Abstract This thesis focuses specifically on weather radar rainfall measurements in strati form precipitation. In North-Western Europe this type of precipitation is most dominant in winter and leads to the largest hydro logical response of catchments. Unfortunately, the quality of uncorrected radar rainfall estimates starts decreasing at relatively close range from the radar for this type of precipitation. Therefore, as a first approach, a number of previously proposed radar error correction algorithms were applied in this thesis. The implementation of these methods shows a positive impact on the quality of the obtained precipitation measurements as compared to rain gauges. However, the traditional approach of applying a uniform Eulerian based algorithm for the entire radar umbrella to correct for VPR, limits its impact to improve the corrected weather radar precipitation measurements
