  • Article

The possibilities of retrieving the parameters of atmospheric structures from radio-occultation sounding data are discussed using the examples of a cyclone and an atmospheric front with different parameters. It is shown that the reconstructed images of such structures are highly distorted (up to tens of percents) and often contain artifacts, both factors complicating the interpretation of meteorological data obtained in radio-occultation experiments.
