Equation (6) is the same as the equation for the general method of AVOA [5], except for the replacement of the amplitude function T in it by attenuation factor [alpha].
Figure 8 shows the results of arousal classification and valence classification with different values of the attenuation factor. When the value of attenuation factor is between 0.05 and 0.35, the MRA on arousal as well as the MRA on valence fluctuates greatly.
To determine thickness by using the linear attenuation factor obtained, we used equation (14).
where R is the distance between the radar and the detection target, [K.sub.r] is the attenuation factor, and [k.sub.t] is the attenuation coefficient in dB/km.
The attenuation factor and the phase factor are related to the dielectric properties of medium as follows [14]:
There is a change in the attenuation factor when a metallic object is placed in proximity to the LC sensor.
The attenuation factor ([lambda]) for a classical error, single-pollutant framework is calculated as
The spectral ratio method (SRM) is the most common approach used to calculate the interval attenuation factor. Initially, it was widely used to estimate attenuation in acoustic VSP data, and recently in shear VSP data (Chuandong & Stewart, 2006).
Note that amn is sometimes also referred to as the modal attenuation factor (MAF) [17,24].
