ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS ON ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION EXPOSURES FROM BASE STATION ANTENNA THROUGHOUT A SINGLE YEAR – A CASE STUDY

Abstract
With the innovation of equipment and augmented needs of data on mobile networks it has been observed that a great amount of cell towers is constructed in metropolises and cities. We studied human exposure to EM radiation from base stations in an area of West Bengal state in India. In this research, measurements have been executed at a fixed location near the cell tower of this place. Here we have compared measured power densities, electric fields and magnetic fields among every day of each month throughout the year. At the moment atmospheric temperature, humidity, wind speed, pressure and precipitation were assessed for this exposure site near the base station. Results were given in terms of power density, electric field and magnetic field in relation to distinctive atmospheric factors. This paper illustrates an approach for the selection of measurement points in Metro city, urban, semi-urban and rural areas in order to evaluate amenableness with the restrictions for exposure to EMF. The amplitude of electromagnetic field exposure (EMF) is dependent on the various factors like antenna distance, base station tower heights, number of base station tower antennas, direction and different atmospheric parameters which are temperature, humidity, wind speed, pressure and precipitation.
