Study of Parabolic Equation Method for Millimeter-Wave Attenuation in Complex Meteorological Environments

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 48, 173-181, 2016
Abstract
The parabolic equation (PE) method for estimating propagation characteristics of millimeter wave, which takes into account of attenuation caused by complex meteorological environment, is proposed. The meteorological environment is treated as a mixture composed of hydrometeors and atmospheric gases. Effective permittivity of the mixture is considered in this paper. Based on the effective permittivity, the PE model for estimating propagation attenuation of millimeter wave is developed via modifying the refractive index. Finally, the model is employed to simulate the propagation characteristics of millimeter wave in complex geographical environments of irregular terrain and rough sea surface, and in complex meteorological environments of standard atmosphere, rain and fog.
