Abstract : Although not widely appreciated, anomalous propagation can cause serious low-angle tracking errors. In fact, it may be argued that errors due to propagation, in particular propagation within evaporation ducts, are now as large, or even larger in some cases, than those caused by inaccuracies which are inherent to superresolution algorithms. The study of errors due to anomalous propagation forms the central thrust for this paper. In particular, this paper describes an investigation into the correlation between data from collocated radio and meteorological experiments.
