Abstract:

This bibliography is offered to encourage the further application of radar meteorological techniques and data in connection with the study of the effects of hydrometeors, precipitation, clouds and fog on microwave propagation. It combines material developed in regard to weather radar research with the more conventional works on attenuation. In addition to the weather radar material, the bibliography includes references on thermal radiation from precipitation, cloud physics, and dielectric and scattering properties of hydrometeors. Some of the references are pertinent to the study of propagation at optical wavelengths and are useful in evaluating the performance of laser communications systems. The 494 references included are from the literature published between January 1950 and October 1964.
