All electromagnetic and hadronic components of the The CDF run II
calorimeter system are scintillator - based sampling calorimeters
employing both older (Run I) and newer fiber - based techniques for
light collection and extraction. The system has now been operating
successfully for several years and is presently taking data at
high luminosity thanks to its design characteristics and
upgrades of its
frontend daq and trigger electronics. The calorimeter system
will be
described with due consideration for calibration and maintenance
techniques required for the preservation of data quality and
and its performance will be summarized with reference to design
