The Galileo radar was developed for the European Space Agency (ESA) by Officine Galileo, the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and the University of Reading under ESA Contract 10568/NL/NB. ECMWF provided the model wind data used in deriving the dissipation rate. A. G. Lomas and S. D. Gill launched and tracked the radiosonde. This work is supported by the Royal Society, through the Instrument Fund established by R. W. Paul.
