Abstract : The spreading loss equation is reexamined in order to provide intensity ratios for all points along a ray in arbitrary layered media. The intensity ratio is shown to be a quadratic function of horizontal range, so that the interpolation problem is solved by the use of a quadratic equation. (Author)
