Abstract : Models for the vertical structure of the refractive index structure parameter, Cn2, appropriate for wargames are discussed. Legacy vertical profile models are reviewed and synthesized to produce a new vertical model that seamlessly spans various segments of the tropospheric atmosphere. The model integrates effects for the surface, boundary, and upper tropospheric layers. Legacy models are reviewed and synthesized to create the new profile model. In this effort the focus has been on… CONTINUE READING
