The viscous damping of atmospheric gravity waves

- M. Pitteway, C. Hines
- Physics
- 17 March 2013

Abstract : Dissipation produced by viscous damping and thermal conduction is important in the study of atmospheric gravity waves, which are themselves important in a study of 'irregular' motions in… Expand

Real‐time data acquisition and interpretation capabilities of the Dynasonde: 1. Data acquisition and real‐time display

- J. Wright, M. Pitteway
- Computer Science
- 1 September 1979

TLDR

The numerical calculation of wave-fields, reflexion coefficients and polarizations for long radio waves in the lower ionosphere. II

- W. Piggott, M. Pitteway, E. Thrane, J. Ratcliffe
- Physics
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 11 March 1965

The characteristics of radio waves of low and very low frequency reflected from numerical models of electron density and collision frequency are calculated by the methods described in the preceding… Expand

The numerical calculation of wave-fields, relexion coefficients and polarizations for long radio waves in the lower ionosphere. I

- M. Pitteway
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 1965

The wave-fields inside a horizontally stratified ionosphere produced by a radio wave incident at any angle from below are calculated by integrating the governing differential equations. An improved… Expand

Bresenham's algorithm with Grey scale

- M. Pitteway, D. J. Watkinson
- Computer Science
- CACM
- 1 November 1980

The control parameter in Bresenham's algorithm, when interpreted as a measure of distance from a straight line boundary, gives a weighted average of the intensities on each side of the line. This can… Expand

Algorithms of Conic Generation

- M. Pitteway
- Mathematics
- 1985

The published algorithm (Computer Journal 10, 282) behaves badly if the gradient of the curve being plotted changes too sharply, so that two or more changes of octant are called for in the space of a… Expand

An Efficient Structural Technique for Encoding 'Best-fit' Straight Lines

- C. M. Castle, M. Pitteway
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- Comput. J.
- 1 April 1987

Real‐time data acquisition and interpretation capabilities of the Dynasonde: 2. Determination of magnetoionic mode and echolocation using a small spaced receiving array

- J. Wright, M. Pitteway
- Physics
- 1 September 1979

Phase measurements by the Dynasonde are obtained for each echo from four spaced receiving antennas in a square array. The antennas are oriented along the array diagonals, and the phase values thus… Expand

Reflexion levels and coupling regions in a horizontally stratified ionosphere

- M. Pitteway
- Physics
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 15 October 1959

The propagation of radio waves through a horizontally stratified and slowly varying ionosphere is governed, in the case of oblique incidence, by a quartic equation (Booker 1938). Ray theory breaks… Expand
