Propagation time delay at this kind of surfaces can be simplified as
Hence the propagation time delay is restricted within 0 < [DELTA][tau] < [T.sub.c].
Propagation time delay is relative to the dip angle of the surface, the distance from the surface to the antenna, and the elevation angle of the direct signal.
This vertical distance can be transformed into geometry distance for propagation time delay calculation.
When [theta] < [beta], the propagation time delay of multipath signals decreases with the increase of satellite elevation angles.
[[tau].sub.0] is the propagation time delay from the satellite to the receiver.
Propagation time delays of multipath signals can be demonstrated in Figure 2.
(a) shows propagation time delays of multipath signals produced by horizontal surfaces.
[tau] is time delay (intrinsic response time delay, and it is different form the propagation time delay due to finite propagation speed of signals between neurons) in electrical autapse and [tau]' is the time delay in chemical autapse.
Nevertheless, as pointed out, there are fringe-shifts measured in many interferometers and there is De Witte's propagation time delay (which is correlated to sidereal time).
