Abstract

The radio refractivity is one of major parameters in troposphere monitoring over a selected military aerodrome. The paper makes an in-depth analysis and description of the results of radio refractivity of the troposphere zone. The radio refractivity of the troposphere zone was estimated for the area of the military aerodrome EPDE in Dęblin, Poland. The radio refractivity of the troposphere zone was calculated using empirical troposphere models for the GNSS satellite technique as well as real meteorological data from the SYNOP message. In the paper, the authors demonstrate the results of wet, hydrostatic and total radio refractivity of the troposphere zone for EPDE military aerodrome. The SA and UNB3m models were applied in numerical computations of troposphere refractivity in an annual period.
