Finally, the surface of the ground is curved. Despite these complications, geometrical optics represents a simple way to find an approximate value for the field at the receiver using the plane wave propagation mechanisms described in this chapter. The following steps are involved: 1. Calculate all possible ray paths between the source and field points which are consistent with Snell’s laws of reflection and refraction (ray tracing). 2. 10). 3. For each ray path, correct the amplitude to account for wavefront curvature from the source and due to the curvature of any boundaries.

If  dominates, the material is a good conductor; if  is very small, the material is a good insulator or good dielectric. 1: Attenuation constant, wave number, wave impedance, wavelength and phase velocity for plane waves in lossy media (after [Balanis, 89]) n ¼ ck=!
