Abstract:

The analysis discusses propagation of electromagnetic waves in an ionosphere with spatial variations of electron density, propagation of electromagnetic waves in the troposphere, corrective procedures in earth-surface geodetic measurements obtained with instruments utilizing wave-propagation principles, and a theory of the decay of refractive index fluctuations with height above the earths surface. Since these areas of studies are in only the initial phases, no significant conclusions were reached concerning the problems of geodesy. Author
