The presentation provides an overview of laser beam propagation experiments performed between Mauna Loa and Haleakala summits (149 km propagation distance) between April 3 and April 15, 2019. The measured data demonstrate high variability and strong coupling of refractivity and turbulence-induced effects on laser beam propagation characteristics.
