TWP/MMCR/C1 - Reflectivities too high
Recent statistical analysis comparing the MMCR on Manus with the MMCRs on Nauru and Darwin along with Cloudsat suggest there is an approximately +10 dB bias to the reflectivites on Manus. Analysis is currently underway to determine the source of this bias and whether it is applicable to all modes and ranges.
Reflectivity values can be used for cloud boundary determination. Users requiring accurate reflectivities should beware.
