For radiowave landmobile cellular wireless communication in 'bad urban' environments dominated by high rises, this paper analytically derives closed-form expressions for the trivariate and bivariate joint distributions of the time-of-arrival and two-dimensional azimuth-elevation direction-of-arrival of the uplink multipaths. These expressions are explicitly in terms of the parameters of a 'geometrical' model of the three-dimensional spatial relationships among the mobile station, the scatterers and the base station. This present 'geometric model' idealises the scatterers as uniformly located within the volume of a three-dimensional vertical above-ground cylinder whose flat bottom circular base centres at the mobile.
