Extension of Lin empirical formula for the prediction of rain attenuation


  • J. D. Kanellopoulos


Lin's empirical expression for calculating rain attenuation is applicable to 5-min point rain rate distributions. A modification of this empirical formula is presented, for application to rain rate with arbitrary integration time. The applicability of this technique is tested against experimental data taken from several locations in the United States and western Europe.
