Deep-water acoustical measurements of rainfall are compared to high-resolution ground radar observations for the first time. The measurements of underwater ambient sound were made from a subsurface mooring near Methoni, Greece, in 2004. The acoustical measurements were at 60-, 200-, 1000-, and 2000-m depths. Simultaneous ground-based polarimetric -band radar observations were made over the acoustic mooring. Comparisons show acoustic detection of rain events and storm structure that are in agreement with the radar observations. Results from a comparison between the underwater sound pressure level at different depths and the observed radar reflectivities are presented.
