Abstract:  Radio propagation above a frequency of 10 GHz is affected by precipitation in terms of attenuation due to its high dielectric constant. As far as Indian subcontinent is concerned, rain and cloud are the most important ones. Thus, there is still tremendous need to develop a strong database on these parameters. The work carried out on cloud and rain characteristics in relation to radio wave propagation over India in recent years only, from 2000 till today is reviewed in this paper. These results are useful to design as well as for estimation performance of microwave communication and for radar propagation over different locations situated in different geographical regions of India.
