This paper reports a statistical relationship between 1 s averaged rain attenuation (A, in decibels) and standard deviation (sigma, in decibels) of simultaneous tropospheric scintillation in 1 s intervals, derived from high resolution (50 samples/s) experimental 19.77 GHz attenuation time series recorded at Spino d'Adda (45.4°N) in a 30.6° slant path to satellite Olympus during an observation time of approximately 1 year. During rain the relationship between scintillation and rain attenuation, suitably separated, can be fit by the power law formula derivable from a turbulent thin layer model.

Abstract

This paper reports a statistical relationship between 1 s averaged rain attenuation (A, in decibels) and standard deviation (sigma, in decibels) of simultaneous tropospheric scintillation in 1 s intervals, derived from high resolution (50 samples/s) experimental 19.77 GHz attenuation time series recorded at Spino d'Adda (45.4°N) in a 30.6° slant path to satellite Olympus during an observation time of approximately 1 year. During rain the relationship between scintillation and rain attenuation, suitably separated, can be fit by the power law formula derivable from a turbulent thin layer model.
