Abstract: The idea behind rainfall measurement, as well as the first relevant measurements, using the power loss estimation function from wireless links, dates back almost fifteen years ago. By that time, several mainly theoretical models had already been developed relating the signal attenuation to the rainfall intensity. The latter is a dominant attenuation parameter specifically for frequencies above 10GHz. Since then, a part of the scientific community has worked extensively on the rain estimation using the earth-to-earth microwave as well as optical attenuation, an issue which is still remaining quite challenging. This paper presents a literature survey on this challenging issue focusing on measurements and experimental setups on the microwave and optical wireless communications. Research gaps and future trends are also presented. Furthermore recent measurements at the lowest microwave spectrum are presented and discussed.
