Abstract:

The orientation of the line of maximum within the diffraction patterns produced by satellite signals is studied. The observed spread of orientation is explained by variations of orientation and elongation of irregularities in case of unusually large spread by assuming a quasi-isometric diffraction pattern. A criterion is given, showing whether the distribution of time delays between similar features observed by a pair of aerials may be interpreted in terms of the height distribution of irregularities.
