George A. Hufford

Abstract: Using empirical fits to published data, formulas are suggested for the complex permittivity of ice. The radio frequency may range from 0 to 1000 GHz, and the temperature from 0° to -40° C. It then becomes apparent where additional data would be welcome.

Keywords: millimeter wave; radio-wave propagation; complex permittivity; ice; semi-empirical models
