HIGH ALTITUDES IN SURFACE NAVIGATION

Charles H. Smiley

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: This paper is to present some results obtained as necessary by products of work on atmospheric refraction at low-angular altitudes. Six trained astronomical observers, members of the Brown University eclipse expedition to Brazil in the spring of 1947, participated in the work described here. All observations were made from surface vessels, with endless-tangent-screw sextants reading to 0.1.
