Paper Abstract

Addressed is the transformation of the polarization state of an electromagnetic wave as it propagates through a rain field. A random medium formulation reflecting the well known anisotropicities of a rain fall is used. Presented are solutions for the mean polarization state and its variance, along with a preliminary example for linear and circular incidence.
