Abstract:

This report compares the performance of infrared and millimeter-wave imagers in various weather conditions rain, fog, clouds, and, to a lesser extent, snow. It then examines how often these weather conditions occur each season at selected areas around the world. The data for the frequency of occurrence of the adverse conditions were taken from a 1992 climatology module that used inputs from 795 meteorological stations around the world.
