Abstract: A detailed description of evaporation ducts and their relevance to radiowave propagation over the sea has been presented. The constantly changing weather conditions over the sea mean that marine and coastal environments, in particular, are prone to these unusual tropospheric phenomena that facilitate radio waves to have higher signal strengths and to travel longer distances than expected. Therefore, the influence of evaporation ducts on over-sea radiowave propagation needs to be thoroughly investigated. Research in this area will have implications for maritime communication systems used in coastal cellular telephone networks, commercial shipping, naval radar operations and sea-rescue.
