Rain Rate Conversion Model for Different Climate Region

Abstract: A variety of precipitation statistics are required in order to satisfy different aspects of satellite link attenuation. Approaches that are extremely useful for modeling one rainfall parameter may not be appropriate for others. It is well know that accurate, high resolution rain rate statistics are important to the design of both terrestrial and earth microwave systems. Due to the availability of 1-minute rainfall rate data is limited, conversion of rainfall rate distribution over a long integration time into the distribution for 1-minute is needed. This talk will be on method used to convert rain rate at various integration of time to 1-minute for distribution at other locations in the tropical and equatorial regions.

Brief Biography of the Speaker: Mandeep Jit Singh received his B.Eng. (with honors) and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Notrhumbria, UK, and Universiti Sains Malaysia, in 1998 and 2006, respectively. From 2006 up to June 2009, he was attached at Universiti Sains Malaysia as a Lecturer. Currently, he is attached to the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia as a Associate Professor. His areas of specialization are radiowave propagation in satellite communication system, radar, antenna design, RF, and microwave. His current research collaboration is with the Association of Radio Industries and Business (ARIB) Japan to analyze the rain fade at Ku-band in tropical climate using satellite involving countries such as Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, and Fiji. Singh has published 200 papers in journals, most in his special field radiowave propagation. He has reviewed more than 100 articles from IEEE Journals to PIERS Journals. He has an h-index of 11 and over 300 citations.
