bioRad provides standardized methods for extracting and reporting biological signals from weather radars. It includes functionality to inspect low-level radar data, process these data into meaningful biological information on animal speeds and directions at different altitudes in the atmosphere, visualize these biological extractions, and calculate further summary statistics.


vol2bird is an algorithm that calculates vertical profiles of birds and other biological scatterers from weather radar data. vol2bird is written primarily in C, and it’s functionality is integrated within bioRad
