... and so large that the mountings of most astronomical telescopes are adjusted to mini-mize the effects of refraction. See also terrestrial refraction . B BOUNDARY LAYER: A relati-vely thin layer of fluid next to a boundary (such as a solid ...


Astronomical refraction

mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/explain/atmos_refr/astr_refr.html

Astronomical refraction Astronomical Refraction Terminology “ Astronomical refraction ” is the angular displacement of astronomical objects from their true or geometrical position, because of the bending of rays in the Earth's ...


Refraction

mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/explain/optics/refr.html

Refraction Refraction Introduction For thousands of years, people have noticed that a stra-ight stick placed obliquely in water appears to be broken at an angle where it enters the wa-ter. This is the origin of the term “refraction,” which ...

Atmospheric Refraction Phenomena

mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/explain/atmos_refr/phenomena.html

Atmospheric Refraction Phenomena Atmospheric Refraction Phenomena Mirages and green flashes , the main topics of this website, are only some of the phenomena caused by ref-raction in the Earth's atmosphere. To put everything into ...


Calculation of Astronomical Refraction

mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/explain/atmos_refr/calc.html

Calculation of Astronomical Refraction Calculation of Astronomical Refraction Introduction To calculate the refraction, we must know the refractive index in the region through which the rays of light pass. For astronomical refraction, this ...


Understanding Astronomical Refraction

... Annotated Green-Flash and Mirage Bibliography Introduction For many years, I have been collecting references on atmospheric refraction and sunset phenomena, starting with papers I needed to calculate airmass, back when I was reducing ...


Symmetry in Atmospheric Refraction

mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/explain/atmos_refr/symmetry.html

Symmetry in Atmospheric Refraction Symmetry in Atmospheric Refraction Introduction Some of the complexity of refraction phenomena can be reduced by considerations of symmetry. This page discusses several of these. Reversibility of rays ...


Integration of the Differential Equation for Refraction

mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/explain/atmos_refr/integrate.html

Integration of the Differential Equation for Refraction Integrating the Differential Equation for Refraction The differential of refraction is dr  =  −(tan z) dn/n , so the refraction integral is r  =  − ∫ n 1  tan z dn/n ; but ...
