Record #35371:

Radar altimeters fooled by polar ice and snow / Amory H. Waite, Stanley J. Schmidt.

Title: Radar altimeters fooled by polar ice and snow / Amory H. Waite, Stanley J. Schmidt.
Author(s): Waite, Amory H.
Schmidt, Stanley J.
Date: 1961.
In: US Naval Institute. Proceedings. (1961.), Vol. 87(9) (1961)
Abstract: Studies of behaviour of radio waves over ice of Antarctica and Greenland showed that, at certain frequencies, radio signals "ignore" ice and penetrate to bedrock. (Thus, radio altimeters of planes flying over poles could show apparent safe clearance above ground, while this might not be so.) Report from paper by Amory H. Waite and S.J. Schmidt, published in Journal of the Franklin Institute, June 1961.
Notes:

US Naval Institute. Proceedings. Vol. 87(9) :158 (1961).
