propagation forecasting

propagation forecasting

[‚präp·ə′gā·shən ′fȯr‚kast·iŋ]
(meteorology)
Forecasting in which the known or predicted vertical distribution of the index of refraction over an area is used to forecast the propagation performance of radars or any microwave radio equipment operating in that area.

Measurements were made for the purpose of validating RF propagation forecasting methodologies and their constituent models: at mospheric surface-layer models, mesoscale NWP models, NWP surface-layer blending techniques, and radio wave tropospheric-propagation models.
This study aims to provide a set of data to validate the end-to-end propagation forecasting process by enabling comparisons between observed and modeled meteorology and collocated observed and modeled RF coverage.
These analysis activities are directly relevant to the primary focus of the TAPS campaign, that is, the investigation of a methodology for forecasting RF coverage and to validate the end-to-end propagation forecasting process by enabling comparisons between observed and modeled meteorology and collocated observed and modeled RF coverage.
