    Graphical Abstract


    This paper aims to develop S-Z and S-Z-DFR relationships for snow estimation using D3R radar in a coastal area. The velocity and diameter measured by the disdrometer is used to derive the snow density directly. Evaluation of the two snow estimation methods is performed at three sites (YPO, CPO, and DGW), and the results show that the radar snowfall estimation agrees well with the ground observations at the three sites and S-Z-DFR algorithm performs better compared with S-Z algorithm.
