The HYDROMET Integrated Radar Experiment (HIRE) international radar-hydrological experiment was initiated to test the hydrological relevance of different types of weather radars in an urban Mediterranean environment. The experiment involved a vertically pointing X-band radar, an X-band radar performing RHI scans and an S-band radar performing PPI scans. Preliminary analyses of the collected data suggest the success of the experiment, from the scientific point of view.
