Dense Maritime Fog Attenuation Prediction from Measured Visibility Data
MetadataShow full item record
The benefits of Free Space Optics (FSO) motivate to use it for future high data rate demanding communication applications. However, widespread growth of the technology has been hampered by reduced availability due to weather influences on the link. The fog has been analyzed as the most detrimental for FSO communication. There are some models that predict fog attenuation in terms of visibility. These models are compared with measured attenuation data of dense maritime fog. The comparison has been in terms of Sum of Square Error (SSE) and Root Mean Square Error (RMSE). A new model has been proposed that gives the least SSE and RMSE for the measured data.
