Abstract Cellular communication networks can be used to accurately predict large-scale rainfall distribution patterns in real time, according to researchers in the Netherlands. The team created rainfall maps for the whole of the Netherlands by using data from a mobile network in the country. This was based on measurements of the attenuation of microwave signal levels across 2400 network links over a four-month period. The resulting maps had a strong correlation with the same measurements taken by the conventional techniques of weather radar and rain gauges.
