Operators Manual: Refractivity Index Profile

Laurance G. Hause; J. E. Frankfurter

Abstract: This handbook contains instructions for operating the Refractivity Index Profile program. The RIP program is designed to calculate, tabulate, and plot the atmospheric refractivity index profiles for a given set of atmospheric data taken at a particular time and a particular location and being applied to a different location in the same general area. The program will give the operator a set of results in report ready format (Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, and Table 1). The following discussion will provide a detailed explanation on the running of the program.
