Variation of Metrological Parameters As They Affect the Tropospheric Radio Refractivity for Akure South-West Nigeria (Review Completed - Accepted)

This research work examines the effect of variations of meteorological parameters on the tropospheric radio refractivity during dry and raining seasons for Akure in 2013. The daily averages of radio refractivity during dry (January) and raining (August) seasons were calculated from the data obtained from the Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NIMET). The data that was used for the computation of radio refractivity is a daily interval of the variations of meteorological parameters for each day in the troposphere for Akure. Consequently, the daily averages of radio refractivity during raining season (August) were greater than the results in dry season (January) as a result of the variations in meteorological parameters such as temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure in the lower troposphere
