I am learning about the several modes of radar that are used to study structure of thunder storms and mesoscale systems. There are three modes of radar scans as documented here - Weather Radar Systems
I have only used the Plan Position Indicator(PPI) mode to track thunder storms.
Could somebody who has used the Range Height Indicator(RHI) mode as a meteorologist or using it as part of their research work put up a sample RHI mode scan for a thunderstorm(can be supercell) explain the following
- What extra information can be gleaned from the RHI mode that is not available with the PPI mode ?
- Can phenomena such as back sheared anvil be observed from the RHI mode ? Also can anvil rain be inferred from RHI mode?
