Abstract:

Purpose To compute the complex refractive index of the troposphere for frequencies from 1 to 1000 GHz in particular, the amplitude and phase dispersion due to molecular oxygen and water vapor lines and the attenuation by suspended water droplets radii or 20 micrometers such as haze, fog, and clouds. Description This is a user-oriented program with descriptive comment statements. Inputs are prompted interactively on teh cathode-ray-tube CRT display. Graphical output is selectively displayed on the CRT or plotted in ink on paper e.g. with an hp 9872A. A tabular output is available on the internal line printer.
