atmosphere. Atmospheric refraction will produce a signiﬁc ant change in the apparent zenith angle that varies with index of refraction and the altitude of the observed object. The magnitude of the refraction can be approximated by (Woolard and Clemence, ) R = r (1 −β)tanza −r (β− r 2)tan3 z a (1). II. Coordinate Reference Frame and Refraction Effects For speciﬁcity (Fig. 1), let a DSS be positioned at the origin (point O) of a topocentric coordinate system, and let α = ε+σ be the apparent elevation of a star at geometric elevation ε due to refraction, where σ is the stellar refraction correction. By deﬁnition, then, a ray viewed (or emitted) at the DSS at.

Effects of the Earth's Curvature and Atmospheric Refraction on estimating a target's position One must account for the curvature of the earth when determining the altitude of a target. Distant targets, which are close to the ground, cannot be seen by a radar because they will be below the horizon.
The propagation refraction due to the atmosphere, d atm, is given by =∫− +∫−∫ ray ray vac d atm (n 1) ds ds ds,(1) where the first term on the right-hand side is the excess path length due to the delay experienced by the signal propagating through the atmosphere, i.e. the propagation delay, and the term in. If atmospheric effects must be considered, this can be done by applying corrections to the measured values. This is the standard pro- cedure in the case of the effect of atmospheric refraction on angle and electronic distance measurements. A similar procedure is used for gravityFile Size: 2MB.

Astronomical refraction deals with the angular position of celestial bodies, their appearance as a point source, and through differential refraction, the shape of extended bodies such as the Sun and Moon.
Atmospheric refraction of the light from a star is zero in the zenith, less than 1′ (one arc-minute) at 45° apparent altitude, and still only ′ at 10° altitude; it quickly increases.

atmospheric refraction Refraction of light passing obliquely through a body's atmosphere. Light entering the Earth's atmosphere is bent toward the Earth, with the result that stars and other celestial bodies appear to be displaced very slightly toward the zenith.
Terrestrial refraction, sometimes called geodetic refraction, deals with the apparent angular position and measured distance of terrestrial is of special concern for the production of precise maps and surveys.
  Since the line of sight in terrestrial refraction passes near the earth's surface, the magnitude of refraction depends chiefly on the temperature gradient near the.

Refraction, Geodetic a general term sometimes used to refer to different types and manifestations of refraction of electromagnetic waves associated with geodetic measurements. When such refraction occurs, the object being observed, that is, the source of the observed electromagnetic waves, is located within the earth’s atmosphere, whereas in the case.
Atmospheric refraction is the deviation of light or other electromagnetic wave from a straight line as it passes through the atmosphere due to the variation in air density as a function of refraction is due to the velocity of light through air decreasing (the index of refraction increases) with increased density.
Atmospheric refraction near the ground produces mirages and can. Atmospheric refraction models in terrestrial and satellite geodesy. In: H.G. Henneberg (Editor), Recent Crustal Movements, Tectonophysics. It is shown that beams of light in the atmosphere normally are not circular.
In addition, the refraction correction of zenith angles for an exponentially stratified atmosphere is : Jurgen Stock. The atmosphere refracts the horizontal line of sight downward, making the level rod reading smaller. The typical effect of refraction is equal to about 14% of the effect of earth curvature.

examples are the Moon, Sun, and the other planets of our space. But those are very limited examples. The Kuiper belt contains many celestial bodies. Any asteroid. Already Ptolemy ( A.D.) noticed that the atmospheric refraction displaces the apparent position of celestial bodies toward the zenith .
Such a regular refraction is caused by the. Atmospheric refraction is the deviation of light or other electromagnetic wave from a straight line as it passes through the atmosphere due to the variation in air density as a function of height. This refraction is due to the velocity of light through air, decreasing (the refractive index increases) with increased density.

File Size: KB. If the path of light travels through the lower atmosphere (i.e., commonly found with near‐ground geodetic measurements), terrestrial refraction is also called geodesic refraction, [cf.
Thomas and Joseph, ] or levelling refraction [e.g., Holdahl, ]. The present paper is concerned with terrestrial refraction in the lower by: The true elevation angles of the Sun are not corrected for atmospheric refraction, which is bending the light while passing through the Earth's atmosphere.
The effect of refraction depends on atmospheric conditions (pressure, temperature, relative humidity) and on the wavelength. Astronomic Refraction • • • • • • • • • •.

EFFECTS OF ATMOSPHERIC REFRACTION ON FAR-FIELD SOUND PROPAGATION By Orvel E. Smith NASA George C. Marshall Space Flight Center SUMMARY Far-field sound intensity levels are calculated by using a theoretical model based on refraction laws.
The theoretical model requires a knowledge of the sound-source. Atmospheric refraction is the deviation of light or other electromagnetic wave from a straight line as it passes through the atmosphere due to the .Celestial navigation, also known as astronavigation, is the ancient and modern practice of position fixing that enables a navigator to transition through a space without having to rely on estimated calculations, or dead reckoning, to know their ial navigation uses "sights", or angular measurements taken between a celestial body (e.g.
