We propose a new technique that overcomes the obstacles of the existing methods for monitoring near-surface water vapor, by estimating humidity from data collected through existing wireless communication networks. Weather conditions and atmospheric phenomena affect the electromagnetic chan-5 nel, causing attenuations to the radio signals. Thus, wireless(More)
—At microwave frequencies of tens of GHz, various hydrometeors cause attenuations to the electromagnetic signals. Here, we focus on the effect of liquid water films accumulating on the outer coverage of the microwave units during times of high Relative Humidity (RH). We propose a novel technique to detect moist antenna losses using standard Received Signal(More)
Atmospheric conditions are known to affect the Received Signal Level (RSL) in commercial microwave links (MWLs), that operate at frequencies of tens of GHz. Study of these effects is of great importance both for communication engineers and for environmental monitoring. In this paper we study the phenomenon of a wet antenna. During periods of high relative(More)
