TABLE OF DISTANCES AT WHICH OBJECTS CAN BE SEEN AT SEA ACCORDING TO THEIR RESPECTIVE

ELEVATIONS AND THE ELEVATION OF THE EYE OF THE OBSERVER.

[blocks in formation]

The distance at which a light is visible above the horizon at sea is proportional to the square root of its height. The effect of atmospheric refraction is to increase the distance of visibility by about the eleventh part of that which results from the consideration of the earth's curvature alone. The preceding table is calculated with regard to refraction, and shows the distance at which an object of a given height is visible above the sea horizon.

In order, then, to ascertain the distance of a vessel from a light just becoming visible, add the distance corresponding to the elevation of the light to that corresponding to the height of the observer's eye above the water. Example 1.-Height of Cape Ann Light, 165 feet, visible...
