DETERMINATION OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF INVERSION REFLECTING LAYERS IN THE TROPOSPHERE ON CHANGES IN THE SIGNAL INTENSITY ON THE NEAR-EARTH OVER-THE-HORIZON ROUTES IN THE MIDDLE LATITUDES
Keywords:Reflection coefficient; Inversion layer; Troposphere; VHF signals; Meteorological data.
The methodology for determining changes of altitude, elevation velocity, and reflection coefficient of the elevated inversion layer in the troposphere is examined based on the results of observation of VHF signals on over-the-horizon (OTH) routes. Estimations of the elevation velocity and reflection coefficient of the elevated inversion layers on the results of measuring of the levels of VHF signals in the zone of the near geometric shadow in the middle latitudes and the meteorological sounding data using balloons are obtained.
