Cloud base and backscatter data from the Met Office's Aberporth Cl31 ceilometer located at Aberporth, mid-Wales. The Met Office's laser cloud base recorders network (LCBRs), or ceilometers, returns a range of products for use in forecasting and hazard detection. The backscatter profiles can allow detection of aerosol species such as volcanic ash where suitable instrumentation is deployed.
