Note the following charts:
Refraction of HF radio waves by the ionosphere (mostly the F layer) is such that lower frequencies are refracted more than higher frequencies.
Refraction of light waves by glass or water is such that lower frequencies (red) are refracted less than higher frequencies (blue).
Why is that?
