Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research (CFARR) ACROBAT (Advanced Clear-air Radar for Observing the Boundary layer And Troposphere) 1275 MHz L-Band Radar

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


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.

Abbreviation: cfarr-radar-acrobat
