Abstract
Accurate simulation and forecasting of over-the-horizon propagation events are essential for various civilian and defense applications. We demonstrate the prowess of a newly proposed coupled mesoscale modeling and ray tracing framework in reproducing such an event. Wherever possible, routinely measured meteorological data from various platforms (e.g., radar and satellite) are utilized to corroborate the simulated results.
