Abstract

The design of fade-mitigation techniques (FMTs), required to efficiently combat the effects of meteorological phenomena when operating at K-band and above, is of current interest to many researchers. One of the key requirements in the design of FMTs is data able to describe the statistical and dynamical variations of attenuation. At K-band and above cloud, rain and gaseous absorption can all lead to significant attenuation. The availability large volumes of global-scale numerical weather prediction model output, such as that available from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) model, has lead to its use in radio propagation prediction modelling.
