Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric & Radio Research (CFARR)

The Facility operates a powerful combination of Doppler radars, lidars, radiometers, and supporting instruments; the Chilbolton Advanced Meteorological Radar (CAMRa) is mounted on the world's largest fully-steerable meteorological radar antenna. This combination of instruments, making detailed observations of precipitation, clouds, water vapour and aerosol, enables world-leading research. The Facility also has radiosonde and tethered balloon launch capability. The Chilbolton Facility currently operates more than twenty major instruments, some continuously, while others are operated on demand.
