Abstract:

The Rice-Holmberg prediction model for surface rain rate distributions is extended to the whole of Europe, including the European USSR. A data base from 249 European stations is used to determine the input parameters for the rainfall prediction model, and rain rate predictions are presented for t-minute periods of an average year in each of the 10 European zones. The mean terrestrial-link performance coefficients, rainfall attenuation rate and rainfall reflectivity, are predicted for the frequency range of 8 to 30 GHz for each of the European rainfall zones.
