Plain Language Summary: An algorithm is developed to detect the spurious differential phase ФDP and specific differential phase KDP in the rain. The development and validation of the algorithm was conducted using the data observed by the C-band polarimetric radar aboard the research vessel Mirai during a pilot field campaign of the Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC) project. The algorithm developed in this study facilitates the quality control of ФDP and KDP.
