Paper Abstract

During the SNOW-ONE and SNOW-ONE-A exercises at Camp Ethan Allen, Vermont, measurements of attenuation through falling snow were made at 35, 95, 140, and 217 GHz over a two-way path length of one kilometre. Attenuations measured appeared to be a function of crystal size, free water content and snow mass concentration. Instrumentation design and the results of measurements are presented with some general observations of turbulent phenomena.
