This document is a revision of the original documentation of 26 February 2001, and describes the recalibrated data that was released to BADC in spring 2002. If you have used the reflectivity values of the original Galileo data for anything quantitative then you should definitely download the newer data, as there was a steady and significant loss of sensitivity during the 18 month duration of this dataset, that we were previously unaware of. This dataset consists of effective radar reflectivity factor (Z) measured by the 94 GHz Galileo cloud radar situated at Chilbolton, England (51.1445�N, 1.4370�W). The instrument is a bistatic system that operates continuously round the clock in a vertically-pointing configuration.
