Computational procedure for calculating the angular refraction from zenithal distance measurements based on the statistical refraction angle correlation and the solution of the refraction equations by the Tikhonov's regularization method is proposed. The proposed technique allows the monotonically varying vertical refraction angles to be calculated with an accuracy as high as 1-2 s of arc.
