Research on Atmospheric Effects on Ka Band Rain Attenuation Modeling and Ionospheric Modeling through Study of Radio Wave Propagation and Solar Activity Project was approved in the First Meeting of the Council held in Beijing, China, from 16 to 17 December 2008.
In 2009, the Second Meeting of the Council decided that Thailand was the lead country for the research on Atmospheric Effects. The feasibility study of the project was required to be conducted for the approval of the Council before implementation. In the meeting, it was agreed that the project consist of two parts i.e. Research on Atmospheric Effects on Ka-band Rain Attenuation Modeling and Research on Atmospheric Effects on Ionospheric Modeling through Study of Radio Wave Propagation and Solar Activity.
For Atmospheric Effects on Ka Band Rain Attenuation Modeling, the objective is to develop the Ka-band rain attenuation model suitable for Member States and compare it with current ITU-R (ITU Radio Communication Sector) model.
For Atmospheric Effects on Ionospheric Modeling through Study of Radio Wave Propagation and Solar Activity, the objective is to develop the ionosphere models based on the measured data from the radio waves at different frequencies reflecting from ionosphere due to solar activity applicable to Asia-Pacific region.

1 Workshop for Research on Atmospheric Effects on Ka Band Rain Attenuation Modeling
Workshop for the Research on Atmospheric Effects on Ka Band Rain Attenuation Modeling and Ionospheric Modeling through Study of Radio Wave Propagation and Solar Activity Project was held in Pattaya, Thailand from 20 to 22 July 2010.Around 20 experts from the Member States attended this Workshop.
During the meeting, all agreed that Thailand as the lead country should circulate the updated documents including budget plan among APSCO Member States, and Thailand would indicate cost-effects for each ground station along with equipment and infrastructure to the Member States. The Member States would indicate their willingness to join project along with the available and required resources to the lead country by end of August, 2010. Thailand should consolidate the proposal including budget plan, schedule and would submit it to APSCO Secretariat. All agreed unanimously to use result of the feasibility study from this workshop for approval by the Council Meeting.
