    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A review is performed of the current simulation tools able to produce simultaneous dynamic fade, due to a range of mechanisms, experienced by heterogeneous networks of SHF and EHF radio links. The primary focus is fading due to rain. A taxonomy of tools is proposed based on the methods used to generate fields of meteorological parameters. The capabilities, deficiencies and future of these tools are discussed and a series of research questions are proposed.
