Abstract : Chapman's Auroral Geometry (J. Atmos. Terr. Phys.) is generalized for an arbitrary angle of incidence of a radio wave on a geomagnetic field line. A method for dealing with refraction is described; in this case the results are illustrated by describing the echo surfaces for a transmitter located at Brisbane. (Author)
