Abstract

An understanding of the refractivity over oceans, which leads to the formation of the evaporation duct, is important in understanding radio wave propagation above UHF frequencies over oceans. This paper reviews experimental radio propagation measurements from a tropical over-ocean link. These measurements are compared with predictions obtained front a commercially available propagation software tool using measured atmospheric parameters. The good correlation in results obtained suggests meteorological data collected during earlier experiments can be interpolated to draw general conclusions about microwave radio propagation in the tropical littoral environment.
