Researchers use attenuation between cell towers to measure rainfall

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/siteProfessional

Abstract

Phys.org)—Researchers in the Netherlands have devised a means to use the attenuation that results with radio signals when rain falls between cellular towers, to measure the amount of rain that falls in an area. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team describes how they were able to use cell phone tower data to create an accurate map of rainfall across the Netherlands twice over 12 day periods in 2011.
