Abstract. Attenuation  X  and depolarization XPD were estimated at the wavelength 2 cm on occultation path if one satellite is in the Earth shadow region. The relationship was obtained that connects  A  and XPD in rains at 2 cm and allows to identify their more reliable. The polarization method is found to allow  defect the thunder discharge regions in the atmosphere.


Keywords: centimeter radio waves, radio wave propagation, depolarization attenuation, radio occultation satellite-satellite paths, monitoring, rain identification.
