Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy of the Model MRA-1 Tellurometer. The main concern of the investigation was the correlation between absolute humidity and true observed error. Since one of the critical phases in the reduction of Tellurometer distances involves the determination of the index of refraction, which depends on the observed meteorological parameters, an analysis of the effects of differential changes in the meteorological parameters involved in these formulas was made.
