Abstract : Routine and special meteorological observations together with airborne refractometer observations were acquired as an improved weather data base for post-analyses of propagation during selected days of the 1974 AWACS SID. This paper describes these data and the methods used to derive detailed refractivity cross-sections for entry into a two-dimensional ray-tracing simulation. (Author)
