Paper Abstract

During the first MAPTIP workshop in Oslo, Norway (May 94) after the trial (Oct. 93), a number of working groups were created. These groups reported some of their joint findings at the second workshop in Quebec City, Canada (May 95). This presentation summarizes the results obtained by the 'refractive effects in the visible and the IR group.' The experimental setups of the three different groups (DEV, FGAN-FfO & CELAR) and the experimental procedures used during the trial are presented along with a summary of the available datasets. Due to the large number of datasets only a select number were chosen for further in-depth analysis. These case studies were chosen using essentially two criteria: (1) interesting meteorological condition and (2) measurements were obtained by more then one group. The meteorological conditions for these case studies are presented along with comparisons of the measurements with the theoretical results obtained using both the PIRAM (CELAR) and L(W)WKD (DREV) models. Differences between the model predictions and some of the problems encountered are also discussed.
