    Abstract

    Propagation parameters such as attenuation and phase shift are proposed for estimating rainfall rate R. Of special importance is the almost linear relationship between the 35 GHz specific attenuation A and R, which implies independence of the A-R relationship from the drop size distribution. The relationships between R and specific attenuation, polarization based specific differential attenuation and differential phase by simulating these parameters using disdrometer measurements of raindrop spectra are illustrated. It is shown that the specific differential phase for horizontal and vertical polarizations at 94 GHz is almost linearly related to R, making it attractive for rainfall rate estimation.
