This report describes research results related to the development and implementation of an inverse problem approach for determining atmospheric vertical refractivity structure. The results encompass three main components i the evaluation of simplified refractivity models, ii evaluation of the sensitivity of EM propagation to environmental parameters, and iii incorporation of results from studies i and ii to develop and optimize the inversion approach. This basic research provides a step towards a semi-empirical approach for determining refractivity in an operational environment in order to provide the fleet with an EM forecast, which improves their maritime domain awareness.
