Abstract:

This report documents an evaluation of three methods for determining radar beam height at 40 proposed FAA and USAF radar stations. All three methods were compared to radiosonde observations RAOBs, which are assumed to be ground truth, in order to determine height errors. The report concluded that climatology was superior to the triexponcntial model at 70 of the stations studied. Both climatology and the triexponential model were found to be superior to the standard atmosphere.
