Abstract

We present a general method of inverting numerical data describing the form of a mirage to yield the atmospheric refractive-index or temperature profile that caused the mirage. The method is applied to three analytically generated mirages and five experimentally observed mirages to demonstrate its effectiveness. It is shown to be reasonably robust and reliable in inverting all but the most complex mirage phenomena.
