This report gives an account of research under COST project 205 on the influence of the atmosphere on radiopropagation on satellite earth paths at frequencies above 10 GHz. The objective of the project has been to assess the results of European activities in the field of slant path propagation, in particular in conjunction with OTS and SIRIO experiments, in order to produce a unified data base, by means of which models could be developed for the European area. These would serve as a base for planning future European satellite communication systems. In particular, the report gives an account of the following activities within the project: measurement techniques, precipitation studies, attenuation due to rain, frequency and attenuation scaling of the rain attenuation, scintillations of earth satellite links, cross polarization due to rain, statistics. The report is edited by the Management Committee of COST project 205.
