Refraction near the horizon-an empirical approach. Part 1: terrestrial refraction of the dip.

Abstract

This study aims at providing improved closed-form refraction estimates for observations near the horizon. In this first part, over 1800 previously published direct measurements of the horizon's depression (dip) over the sea are reanalyzed using a nonconventional robust procedure for coping with numerous real, large, and asymmetric outliers from abnormal… (More)
