Atmospheric effects on multiple-frequency range measurement techniques are examined on the basis of geometrical optics. Analyses are made for both the dual-frequency case two optical wavelengths and the triple- frequency case two optical and one radio wavelength separate consideration is given to the ground-to-ground and ground-to-air or ground-to-space configurations. The results indicate that for the ground-to-ground case accuracies of from 2 parts in 10 to the 8th power to 6 parts in 10 to the 7th power can be achieved, depending on the method used and the meteorological conditions encountered.
