Abstract: The results of a radar study of vertical growth rates, decay rates and durations of convective clouds observed in Delhi region during April-August 1982 have been presented. The study relating to 22 cloud cases showed that the vertical growth rates of their radar echoes varied between 0.9 and 25.0 m s-1 and the decay rates varied between 0.9 and 8.7 m s-1. Average echo duration was found to be 50 min. Variations of the cloud-echo top height with time and the associated surface rainfall rate (cloud-echo intensity near ground level) have been found to be positively correlated.
