This paper introduces a two-way split-step parabolic equation propagation tool (2W-SSPE), which is capable of handling both forward and backward scattered waves during groundwave propagation over an irregular terrain, through inhomogeneous atmosphere. The algorithm is calibrated and tested against reference data obtained with the help of image method and the Geometric Optic (GO) + Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD).
