Goal and objectives include the following Improve models for describing near horizon radar propagation by proper specification of the near-surface atmosphere refractivity gradients and wind influenced surface roughness. Evaluate Monin-Obukhov surface-layer scaling for describing near surface gradients of refractivity and on characterizing the surface roughness for radar backscatter and propagation within evaporation ducting.
