The Roughness and Evaporation Duct (RED) experiment was designed to relate the effect of atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) features as well as ocean surface roughness to near-surface high frequency electromagnetic propagation. For this, ABL and ocean surface data, as well as propagation data, were collected at mid-path locations in August and September 2001 off the windward coast of Oahu, Hawaii. The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and SPAWAR Systems Center, San Diego (SSC-SD) performed collaborative atmospheric surface layer (NPS) and propagation (SSC-SD) measurements to identify the state of understanding of the atmosphere influence.
