Atmospheric electromagnetic wave propagation plays a crucial role in determining the performance of communication and radar systems that operate at millimeter through visible wave-lengths. Theoretical treatments of atmospheric wave propagation draw upon work on the micrometeorology of the medium, and feed work on the design and performance analysis of communications and radar systems. This paper will illustrate some of the features of the foregoing hierarchy, focusing on the interaction between the propagation and system analyses. Specific examples include: optical communication through atmospheric turbulence, coherent laser radar operation in atmospheric turbulence, and millimeter-wave communication through rain.
