Atmospheric Refraction
Asked by ashakutty | 30 Jul, 2009, 10:55: PM
Expert Answer

WE MAY COMSIDER THE ATMOSPHERE TO BE COMPOSED OF LAYERS OF AIR, ONE ABOVE THE OTHER , EACH HAVING A VARYING DENSITY.

Hence a beam of light traveling through these layers of varying densities get refracted at the interface of two layers. This phenomenon of refraction of light rays by the layers of atmosphere of varying densities is called as atmospheric refraction.
