Paper Abstract

In this paper we address the problem of estimating vertical profiles of atmospheric water vapor by means of attenuation measurements simultaneously made at different frequencies along a vertical satellite-ground link. The operating frequencies are those around the spectral absorption lines of water vapor at 22.235 GHz, the number of frequencies depending on the required vertical detail. A simulation is presented of such a system, based on a atmospheric propagation model and on radiosonde data providing true profiles of temperature, pressure and water vapor.
