Complex physical models are necessary to interpret the patterns of microwave attenuation versus depolarization gathered from measurements along Earth-to-satellite paths, due to the layered structure of the atmosphere in the presence of precipitation or clouds. Here we show that a simulation tool previously developed and based on physical concepts achieves good results when checked against measured patterns in a few case studies. Upon further validation, the simulator could be useful in assessing the effects of interference in the design of satellite systems based on polarization diversity.

Abstract

Complex physical models are necessary to interpret the patterns of microwave attenuation versus depolarization gathered from measurements along Earth-to-satellite paths, due to the layered structure of the atmosphere in the presence of precipitation or clouds. Here we show that a simulation tool previously developed and based on physical concepts achieves good results when checked against measured patterns in a few case studies. Upon further validation, the simulator could be useful in assessing the effects of interference in the design of satellite systems based on polarization diversity.
