Title: Earth curvature and atmospheric refraction effects on radar signal propagation.

Abstract

The earth isnt flat, and radar beams dont travel straight. This becomes more noticeable as range increases, particularly at shallow depression/grazing angles. This report explores models for characterizing this behavior.
