The topic of radar reflectivity of aurora effects is discussed. The report describes a method for representing the volume backscattering characteristics of auroral irregularities. The objective was to develop a universal relationship for calculating the aurora reflectivity. The expression would then normalize all radar-dependent parameters, including geographic location. In attempting to derive a classical solution to the problem, some ambiguous terms remain. However, the technique should prove useful for making certain limited comparisons of data from different radars.
