Paper Abstract

When we look at a fixed landmark on a distant hillside, sometimes the landmark is easily seen, yet on other occasions the same landmark is only just discernable. Your eyes have not changed nor has the distance between you and the landmark. The controlling factor which is dictating your viewing ability is the composition of the intervening atmosphere. This atmospheric composition is continually changing with the fluctuations of the prevailing meteorology. Despite the fact that it is known that prevailing meteorology affects performance the effect is seldom explored and when explored often made excessively complicated. A technique developed at the J Mc G Sowerby Research Centre within British Aerospace at Bristol allows the effects of meteorology to be rigorously, but yet simply evaluated.
