Marketing bafflegab built around doppler shift, then throw in a little "automatic" "Bird Mode" (where did they get that one from )and we have what is known as sales puffery.Sure it does. Every sweep gives it information it can use to determine if the waves are large or small, or if there is a lot of precipitation, or there is another strong radar interfering, etc. It is just like you turning your knobs to get the best picture for the conditions. You don't use specific weather or wave information to do that on your set by turning a knob to "4' waves and light rain" - you just adjust the return picture accordingly.
The broadband doppler units have even more information on each sweep they can use - speed, direction, size, etc.
Which current radar unit do you have?
Have at it, I'm done with this one.
