4). Thus one needs to resort to higher-order terms in the series solution formulated by Mie for the sphere scatter problem. A wave suffers power loss both from energy absorption and scatter. Analogous to the backscatter cross section, there is a total scatter cross section as that accounts for the total power scattered by a drop. This is proportional to the integral over a sphere of the scattered power density Sr(9\ (/>'); hence for small spherical drops σ8 = 2a b /3 (Battan, 1973). Thus the total power extracted from a wave is proportional to the sum aa + σδ.
The lower dashed curve is for minimum galactic noise, zero sun noise, and elevation angle of 90°. 2 and 60 GHz are due to water-vapor and oxygen absorption resonances.

1), and, as before, U = 1 when its argument is between 0 and τ, zero otherwise. Range time 2r/c specifies, in units of time, the target location. 26) of the echo is dependent on t as well as r. An important receiver component is the STALO (stabilized local oscillator; Fig. 1), which oscillates at the transmitted frequency / plus (or minus) a small but fixed offset frequency fA. A portion of its signal is summed with the echo signal, whose strength is weak relative to the STALO's. For this condition the sum of the two signals can be well approximated by an expression in which the STALO signal is modulated by another that exactly replicates the echo signal in both phase and amplitude shape except that its frequency is fA (Rideout, 1954, p.
