The Handbook on Radiometeorology supplies background and supplementary information on radiowave propagation effects as described and used in the ITU-R P series of Recommendations thus giving a more detailed understanding of these Recommendations, in particular to those who wish to contribute to their development.



Attenuation by atmospheric particles

Hydrometeors in the form of rain, hail or wet snow can produce severe attenuation of radio waves. In most locations, rain is the dominant form of atmospheric precipitation. Although rain absorbs and scatters energy at all frequencies, rain attenuation is only important for frequencies above several gigahertz.
