Abstract:

An analog computer is used to trace acousticwave ray paths to altitudes in excess of 300 km. A horizontally stratified atmosphere in which the velocity of sound is that implied by the 1959 BAMIRAC model atmosphere is assumed. A plot is presented showing the behavior of rays emanating at 5-deg increments in vertical angle from a source at ground level. Similar plots are given for sources at 50-km height increments up to a maximum of 250 km altitude. Author
