Abstract
Total atmospheric attenuation under conditions of cloud cover was measured at frequencies of 15 and 35 GHz using the sun as a source. Over 300 sets of data were collected at each frequency. An algorithm for estimating the slant path attenuation under conditions of cloud cover as a function of elevation angle, frequency and surface absolute humidity was derived.
