As the goals for altimetric measurements become ever more precise, there is concern about the reliable detection and discarding of rain contaminated data. A dual-frequency rain detection technique developed for the Ku- and C-band TOPEX altimeter, is adapted for the Ku- and S-band RA-2 altimeter on Envisat. Of particular concern is the selection of a suitable threshold to minimise the quantity of good data inadvertently discarded.
