Abstract
Although not widely appreciated, anomalous propagation can cause serious low-angle tracking errors. In fact, it may be argued that errors due to propagation, in particular propagation within evaporation ducts, are now a large, or even larger in some cases, than those caused by inaccuracies which are inherent to superresolution algorithms. The study of errors due to anomalous propagation forms the central thrust for this paper. In particular, the paper describes an investigation into the correlation between data from collocated radio and meteorological experiments. The data analyzed and reported on in the paper have been recorded on the Ottawa River and consist of both radio and meteorological measurements. The measurements were carried out using a low-level beacon and a large synthetic aperture antenna, which is called a "vertical profiler". TRUNCATED
