Radar meteoroids advances and opportunities W J Baggaley

aDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, University of Canterbury, Private Bag 4800, New Zealand.

Radar sensing of meteoric plasma is a powerful tool for probing the spatial structure of meteor streams, the mass distribution of their member particles, and the dynamics of individual meteoroids. With their enhanced sensitivity, radars are able to provide information that complements photographic, TV, and video techniques and also to probe areas inaccessible to other methods. An outline will be given of presently operating radar systems and current programmes that contribute to our knowledge of inner Solar System dust.
