Abstract:

The report presents working formulas for calculating the index of refraction of the atmosphere, and the vertical rate of change thereof, for electromagnetic radiation radar at various altitudes. The basic input information is the standard teletyped message TEMP of TEMP SHIP containing, in coded form, the values of pressure, altitude, temperature, and dewpoint temperature at certain standard pressure levels, as obtained from radiosonde observations.
