Using Improved XGBoost Algorithm to Obtain Modified Atmospheric Refractive Index

Yanbo Mai, Zheng Sheng, Hanqing Shi, Qixiang Liao, Stefania Bonafoni
2021 International Journal of Antennas and Propagation  
Atmospheric refraction is a special meteorological phenomenon mainly caused by gas molecules and aerosol particles in the atmosphere, which can change the propagation direction of electromagnetic waves in the atmospheric environment. Atmospheric refractive index, an index to measure atmospheric refraction, is an important parameter for electromagnetic wave. Given that it is difficult to obtain the atmospheric refractive index of 100 meters (m)–3000°m over the ocean, this paper proposes an

Finally, the mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) and root mean-squared error (RMSE) are used as evaluation criteria to compare the prediction results of improved XGBoost algorithm with backpropagation (BP) neural network and traditional XGBoost algorithm. The results show that the MAPE and RMSE of the improved XGBoost algorithm are 39% less than those of BP neural network and 32% less than those of the traditional XGBoost. Besides, the improved XGBoost algorithm has the strongest learning and generalization capability to calculate missing values of atmospheric refractive index among the three algorithms. The results of this paper provide a new method to obtain atmospheric refractive index, which will be of great reference significance to further study the atmospheric refraction.

In addition, the singular value decomposition (SVD) was used to examine the relationship between the Arctic vortex and atmospheric ducts. The annual average probability of atmospheric ducts, primarily surface and elevation ducts, was approximately 30% in Alaska. The probability of elevation ducts was greater than that of surface ducts. The Arctic vortex area and intensity index of each subarea were significantly negatively correlated with the occurrence of atmospheric ducts. Thus, when the area of the Arctic vortex increased and the intensity index of each subarea strengthened, the probability of atmospheric ducts decreased and their characteristics weakened.

This paper presents the wind data analysis for five coastal locations of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, namely Dhahran, Yanbo, Al-Wajh, Jeddah, and Gizan.  ...  It was found that Yanbo is the best location, among the sites analyzed, for harnessing the power of wind, while Dhahran is the next best location.  ...  Monthly mean wind speeds of the order of 5.0 m/s and above are noticed in the summer months from May to August. At other heights, higher values are observed but follow the same trend as at 10 m.  ...
