Paper Abstract

Space-temporal distributions of main characteristic stratified inhomogeneities in the troposphere of the Russian Far East are considered: heights of the bottom boundary and intensity. To develop statistical models of the radiotroposphere it is necessary to study the vertical extension structure of the refraction. The analysis of radiosound measurements at subarctic aerological stations has shown, that maximum quantities of inhomogeneities N are concentrated in the atmospheric layer from 1 to 2 kilometers. At subartic continental stations during the cold season, anomalies of the N structures are observed more often and occur in higher layers of the atmosphere. The vertical extension of layers reaches 400 m., and the range variation of layer intensity is (3.1-15.5) N-units. At the station of Magadan, it is revealed that the maximum number of inhomogeneities is observed during the spring-summer season when the layers extend to 340 m., and the intensity changes in the range of (4.7-9.3) N-units.
