EffectiveRadiusAtmosphericRefractionModelMaximumAltitude Property

Gets or sets the maximum altitude.

public double MaximumAltitude { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Double
For platforms at higher altitudes (e.g., launch vehicles and satellites), the refraction angle computed by the effective radius model is a poor approximation to reality (because the refraction angle is too large). If the higher platform's altitude is above the maximum altitude, then the effective radius model does not apply. In such cases, if ExtrapolateAboveMaximumCeiling is set to false, then the refraction angle is set to 0.0 deg.
