Geophysical Aspects of Atmospheric Refraction
NAVAL RESEARCH LAB WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this paper is to discuss some of the geophysical aspects of atmospheric refraction and its effect on radars. Of special concern is the cause-and-effect relationships associated with the trapping of electromagnetic energy into atmospheric duct layers that result in anomalous propagation conditions and extend radar ranges far beyond the normal radar horizon.
