Abstract : The Programme was subdividied into five major sessions, dealing with tropospheric characteristics, propagation through the troposphere, reflection and refraction in the troposphere, tropospheric scatter propagation, and tropospheric propagation predictions. In all sessions, invited review papers enabled participants to inform themselves on the present state of research. These were followed by contributed papers dealing with recent results in a detailed fashion. Throughout the Symposium, the more theoretical approach in scientific research was accompanied by data of direct applicability in the military fields. Of particular importance were contributions referring to space and terrestrial communications above 10 GHz; they aimed at opening up the usefulness of this frequency range for future applications.
