Abstract
The paper presents some results obtained by Canada's Defence Research Establishment Valcartier (DREV) during the Marine Aerosol Properties and Thermal Imager Performance (MAPTIP) trial off the North Sea coast of The Netherlands during October 1993. Our study of refraction effects in the Marine Boundary Layer (MBL) in both the visible and infrared (IR) wavelength bands produced a large quantity of excellent experimental data. Along with data obtained from previous campaigns in both Canada and Germany, this data set is being used to test the validity of the WKD and the Wavy WKD (WWKD) models developed by DREV. These early results from the recent MAPTIP trial have shown that in general the predictions of the WWKD model agree remarkably well with the experimental data.
