> What is the def "lg(re (1e-6 m)^3)", symbol Bz, listed under volume in

A "Bz" is the base unit for "dBz", which is a logarithmic unit for measuring 
atmospheric radar reflectivity. A value of 0 dBz (or 0 Bz, for that matter) 
corresponds to a cubic micron). A value of 60 dBz (6 Bz) corresponds to very 
heavy rain.
