    Abstract

    The attenuation of a commercial satellite link signal at Ku-band is used for estimating rainfall rate along the link path. Comparisons with rainfall accumulations obtained using simultaneous radar measurements along the same path show good agreement. This method can potentially be used to complement other rainfall accumulation measurements obtained with radar and rain gauges in urban settings and areas with complex terrain.
