Terahertz Radio Waves Specific Attenuation Due to Rain with Small Raindrops

2014 Journal of Atmospheric Electricity  
It is pointed out, that raindrop size distributions widely used to estimate theoretically the radio waves specific attenuation due to rain in the microwave range, inadequately represent the quantity of small raindrops. According to experimental data for some geographical regions (for example, Japan) the quantity of these raindrops is too large. This fact restricts the use of well known distributions in the terahertz range. So, taking into account small raindrops, the new distribution is
