This note points out an error in the dependence of amplitude on range of refraction arrivals as proposed by Officer. It is shown that this dependence should be r (super -3/2) , the usual dependence of such waves. The difficulty arises from the fact that an approximation used by Officer is valid over an interval which decreases with range like r (super -1/2) ; this extra factor is missing in the development.
