The application of Q VIL (Vertical Integration of Liquid Water) to estimating precipitation is discussed. It is the first time that the detailed comparison is made between the estimated precipitation from Q VIL ,from the conventionally used PPI and CAPPI,and the in situ measurement of raingauges.It shows that Q VIL can make use of the three dimensional characteristics of radar observations,and better than Z from either PPI or CAPPI as far as for estimating precipitation.
