Random information on the term “SAILS”:

The Canadian weather radar network consists of 31 weather radars spanning Canada’s most populated regions. Their primary purpose is the early detection of precipitation, its motion and the threat it poses to life and property.

Each had until 2018 a range of 256 km (159 mi) in radius around the site to detect reflectivity, 3 angles with a range of 128 km (80 mi), for detecting velocity pattern (Doppler effect), and an extra long range at low elevation angle of 240 km (150 mi) but strongly folded for latter same purpose.

The renewal of the network, from 2018 to 2023, with new S-Band radars brings these numbers respectively to 300 km (190 mi) for reflectivity and 240 km (150 mi) for full Doppler coverage. Furthermore, the new radars are dual-polarized which means precipitation type can be estimated directly.

Research in weather radars in Canada began at the end of the Second World War with “Project Stormy Weather”. After the war, J.S. Marshall continued at McGill University the work with the “Stormy Weather Group”. The Canadian network was thus gradually formed and by 1997, there were 19 weather radars of two kinds across the country: 18 five centimeter wavelength (C-Band) radars and 1 ten centimeter wavelength (S-Band) at McGill, all of the radars detected reflectivity and are equipped with Doppler capabilities.
