Abstract

An integral transform technique, based on Tikhonov’s regularization method, is presented which is useful for the remote sensing of structure constant profiles from noisy log amplitude scintillation data. The inversion technique is shown to consist of two parts, one of which is to determine the average value of the structure constant profile and the other of which is to determine the inhomogeneous portion of the profile. A simple and effective function for regularization which is the core of the inversion technique is given. Numerical examples of the technique are also given.
