Abstract

The basic results have been considered for multiwave remote sounding of the troposphere with clouds and rain from ground-based station in the zenith direction. The radio wave scattering by rain drops as well as variation of vapour content in the atmosphere during measurements are taken into account when processing of the experimental data. A separation of the complete attenuation in clouds with rain has been made over three components: due to vapour, cloud and rain. A relation is considered of millimeter and centimeter wave attenuation in clouds with rain between each other and with the rain intensity. A behaviour of the relation of attenuation structural functions is explained. The Diagnostic problems of millimeter wave attenuation are considered.

Key words
