Paper Abstract

The current state of knowledge of atmospheric propagation effects on radiowaves which impact system performance are reviewed, with particular emphasis on prediction models and techniques developed from satellite propagation beacon measurements. The availability of satellite beacons, operating at frequencies from below 10 GHz to well above 30 GHz, beginning about two decades ago, has provided researchers with a vast array of data for the development and validation of atmospheric prediction models for the principal atmospheric degradations effecting radiowave systems. These effects include; rain attenuation and depolarization, oxygen and water vapor attenuation, ice particle depolarization, ionospheric scattering and tropospheric scintillation.
