Cloud Reflectivity Modification
... Cloud reflectivity modification is a proposed process of altering clouds to make them more or less reflective, in order to change their effect on climate ... Therefore, thinning or removing these clouds reduces their reflectivity to infra-red and results in a net cooling effect on the Earth's climate ... By modifying the reflectivity of clouds, the albedo of the Earth would be altered ...
Weather Radar - Data Types - Reflectivity (in Decibel or DBZ)
... Return echoes from targets, reflectivity, are analyzed for their intensities to establish the precipitation rate in the scanned volume ... Reflectivity perceived by the radar (Ze) varies by the 6th power of the rain droplets' diameter (D), the square of the dielectric constant (K) of the targets and the drop size ... Reflectivity is then averaged for that target to have a better data set ...
