The ACROBAT radar system can detect the backscatter from small variations in atmospheric refractive index, enabling the investigation of structures such as the boundary layer, convective plumes, and surface based and elevated radio ducts. The radar's Doppler capability permits the measurement and mapping of radial wind velocity, while measurement of spectral width enables identification of regions of enhanced turbulence.

If you have queries about these pages or about obtaining the data from the BADC then you should contact CEDA Support. Your query should be answered within one working day. When follow-up work is required, the CEDA support will carry out the work as quickly and efficiently as possible, and in any case, the user will be kept informed of progress.
