Modern U.S. Military radars and communication equipment performance will be strongly influenced by the environment it will be operating in. One of the most important atmospheric affects is ducting of electro- magnetic energy by refractive layers in the atmosphere. To assess the affects of ducting on electromagnetic emissions around Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, a geometric optics model of wave propagation developed by Raymond P. Wasky was modified and utilized. This thesis also attempted to show the correlation of wind direction and wind speed to the establishment, location and heights of ducts. Finally this thesis attempted to determine if there was any correlation between the occurrence of land-sea breezes and ducting.
