The attenuation of microwave signals through the atmosphere, particularly a rainfall field, can be used to measure the atmosphere. Three years ago, we made a hypothesis that, by using microwave signals from broadband Low Earth Orbit satellites for the Internet services, 3D tomographic reconstruction of rainfall may be achieved with cheap ground receivers.

To verify the hypothesis, we proposed to use the estimated signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at the ground receivers for LEO satellites to indirectly estimate the path-integrated rain attenuation of the microwave communication links. Least-squares algorithms were then employed to perform the 3D tomographic reconstruction of the rain field. The proposed system model consisted of an LEO satellite with a realistic overpass trajectory and multiple ground receivers with SNR estimators. Using several synthetic rain events, extensive simulations were carried out to test the reconstruction outcome.

Our research has shown that, by using microwave signals from an LEO satellite, multiple ground receivers can work together to achieve 3D measurements with resolution and coverage unachievable before, thereby paving the way for innovative water related applications such as in hydrology and agriculture and improving our understanding of many rainfall related phenomena including extreme weather, floods, landslides, and the spread of water-borne diseases.
