  • Point-to-point ionospheric ray tracing by a direct variational method

    While the Haselgrove ray tracing equations are well suited to situations where the ray launch direction is known, they are less effective for situations where only the end points of the ray are known. In such cases, many rays must be traced from the launch point in order to home in on the landing point. An alternative approach is to directly solve the variational principle from which the Haselgrove equations are derived. Such an approach is well suited to the point-to-point ray tracing, but poses several technical difficulties. In this paper we overcome these difficulties and show that a direct approach can indeed provide an effective means of point-to-point ray tracing.

  • Huygen's principle applied to radio wave propagation

    Huygen's principle, in the form of boundary integral equations, is applied to the problem of radio wave propagation. Complex propagation is analyzed by dividing the region between transmitter and receiver into a number of zones and propagating the solution between these zones by means of integral equations with simple approximate kernels. In the limit that the regions become dense, the approach leads to a useful form of the WKB solution, and this is demonstrated through its application to the study of propagation through a disturbed ionosphere.

  • Excited spherical waves in unbounded cold magnetoplasma and applications in radio sounding

    The electromagnetic field excited by an arbitrary current source embedded in an unbounded uniform cold magnetoplasma is investigated in this paper. The Green's function method for solving the radiation equation is used, and the derived solution is valid for any cold plasma parameters. There are always two wave modes excited, and in the far field each mode has the form of a spherical wave. A refractive index for spherical waves is introduced to describe the propagation. The properties of these excited spherical waves are discussed in this paper in comparison with the plane wave representation. It is shown that the energy flow of the spherical wave is always in the radial direction, i.e., parallel to the wave normal.

  • Determination of rain attenuation from electromagnetic scattering by spherical raindrops: Theory and experiment

    The forward scattering amplitudes for the spherical raindrops are determined for all raindrop sizes at different frequencies by using the Mie scattering theory. The real parts of the extinction cross sections are used to generate power law models at different frequencies. These are integrated over different established raindrop-size distribution models to formulate rain attenuation models. Using the developed rain attenuation models with 5 year rain rate statistics at R<inf>0.01</inf> determined in previous work, the specific rain attenuation is computed. The experimental results obtained from the horizontally polarized signal level measurements recorded in Durban for different rain attenuation bounds are compared with the theoretical results. Finally, the best theoretical model is used to estimate the seasonal cumulative distribution of rain attenuation for Durban, South Africa.
