Abstract

The possibility of estimating the optical refractive index in the atmospheric boundary layer from air temperature profiles measured with a MTP-5 meteorological temperature profiler is studied. The refractive index profiles retrieved from MTP-5 data and from aerological measurements are compared. Examples of the refractive index and its derivatives for different seasons are given.
