The properties of the lower atmosphere are very important in the operation of many systems. Of particular importance is the effect on electromagnetic propagation for the full range from optical to radio wavelengths. Small scale fluctuations and aerosols severely affect optical propagation, Large scale changes in the index of refraction cause bending of rf and microwaves, leading to ducting, fading, and a host of other phenomena. Experimental assessment of atmospheric properties can only be done occassionally and on a widely separated basis. Author
