Abstract:

The effect of small to medium scale ionospheric irregularities on the pointing accuracy of UHF radars is examined for mid- and high-latitude sites. Refraction and range errors are estimated for typical situations as well as their elevation dependence. Examples of specific radar locations are presented.
