For a class I'm doing I have an assignment where we have to do a report on a Space Science Instrument. I am doing Cloud Profiling Radar. Part of the report has to involve some calculations which basically just apply out knowledge of physics to the properties of the instrument. The trouble is I don't really understand what some of the properties mean, and how the radar actually works. The properties I have are listed here: http://cloudsat.atmos.colostate.edu/instrument/instrument.html If anyone could explain some of these properties to me, that would be great.
