Paper Abstract

For atmospheric conditions, the relaxation matrix is characterized by both broadening of the absorption line and spatial variation of the frequency shift. The variations, adding to spatial variations of gas concentration, can cause specific peculiarities in effects of resonance interaction. Nonstationary refraction in a region of resonance interaction was shown to cause essential changing of the atmosphere transmission when propagation direction is changed. Analysis of the last group of phenomena for a case of constant resonance absorption gas concentration is presented in this paper. The analysis was carried out for a model of two-layer nonhomogeneous medium.
