Abstract
The physical properties of the earth's atmosphere constitute an important factor in determining the nature of radio wave transmission from one location to another on the earth's surface. The report presents a summary of various attempts at observing the refractive index structure in the lower levels of the atmosphere where its impact on radiowave propagation is greatest. It also contains a review of different meteorological techniques and instrumentation for studying the troposphere and discusses possible methods for injecting these instruments into the region of interest. In addition to the references considered explicitly in the main body of the report, a substantial bibliography is included. This bilbliography is the result of a search of the literature dealing with numerous theoretical and experimental aspects of anomalous microwave propagation.
