Based on the refraction equations that account for the combined effects of bottom topography and spherical earth effects, and correct to the Mercator Projection, a computer refraction program was written and specialized to the area near the Chesapeake Light Station. A cubic spline interpolation scheme is used to define the depth value at each grid point from available depth data in appropriate bathymetric charts. In this computer program a change of mesh size is allowed to meet the change of topographic scale.
