In this paper, a functional description of how to recombine super resolution (0.5 deg) polarimetric level II data into regular (legacy 1 deg) resolution is presented. Then test of classification algorithm on these data has been made. The test results demonstrate that it is essentially not affected by the recombination procedure. This is because there is no substantial difference between polarimetric data computed in the super resolution and legacy modes. Nonetheless, testing was done on one data set hence it is premature to accept this finding in general. Additional testing should be made on a variety of weather radar data.
