Modeling Tropospheric Delays with Atmospheric Turbulence Models
Conference contribution, 2008

In this work we show how atmospheric propagation delays for radio signals can be simulated based on the theory of atmospheric turbulence. We also discuss how to obtain station specific parameters, e.g. the refractive index structure constant C_n, from analysis of high resolution radiosonde data. As an example, atmospheric delays for the station Gilmore Creek and the CONT05 campaign are simulated.
