Abstract

Forty-four papers, featured in two issues of Applied Optics, contain significant recent results in the propagation and scattering of optical waves in the atmosphere with overviews of the state of the art. The first part, in this 1 June 1988 issue, deals with propagation and scattering in continuous media, including computer simulation of scintillation, scintillation theory and statistics, and the measurement of turbulence and atmospheric parameters. The second part, in the 15 June 1988 issue, covers nonlinear scattering, scattering by composite, nonspherical and irregular particles, multiple scattering, and lidar measurements.
