Abstract:

Attenuation of electromagnetic EM waves by Hydrometeors such as rain, snow, clouds, and fog, can cause serious degradation of EM wave systems. This report describes such attenuation of radio waves to X-rays, with primary applications to communications in the microwave and millimeter wave portions of the EM spectrum.
