|Title:||Rain drop-size distribution and attenuation for Indian climate|
|Authors:||Jassal, B S|

|Abstract:||The performance of the microwave links at frequencies have 10 GHz are constrained by the excess attenuation due to precipitation, specially, rainfall. In the tropical and equatorial climates, rain attenuation is much more severe due to higher precipitation rates. In this paper, distrometer data have been analysed to evaluate rate of rainfall, drop-size distribution (DSD) and specific attenuation at 20 GHz for each rain event. A rain attenuation model has been developed based on the DSD data and compared with CCIR and other models.|
