Abstract

The study of rainfall rate integration time is important to designers of satellite communication systems. In most part of the world, long-term rain statistics are typically available for integration time of very long durations; even perhaps of one hour or more. The method and appropriate conversion of rainfall rate distribution from variable integration times to the equivalent 1-minute are indeed vital. This is due to the fact that established prediction methods for estimating the rain induced attenuation on satellite-Earth links utilize the 1-minute rainfall rate data.
