Abstract:

This report presents results of a study to 1 determine the ability of a computer-generated analysis of atmospheric refraction to detect and predict anomalies in the performance of tropospheric scatter communications links and 2 verify the skill with which the vertical profile of atmospheric refraction were forecast for 12 hours. The need for a capability to remotely analyse and forecast refractivity, and the advantages and disadvantages to the technique used to attempt to satisfy this need are discussed.
