The positive correlation between the plane wave scintillation and $\langle T\rangle$⟨T⟩ is a new result different from previous reports [15,16]. The difference comes from our extended consideration of $A$A, $B$B, and ${d_r}$dr varying with ${\langle}T \rangle $⟨T⟩ and ${\langle}S \rangle $⟨S⟩.

The change of refractive index with temperature and salinity is nonlinear, which means the linear coefficients of temperature and salinity should vary with ${\langle}T \rangle $⟨T⟩ and ${\langle}S \rangle $⟨S⟩, and as we know, refractive index changes with wavelength. For the above reasons, we treat the linear coefficients $A$A and $B$B as environment-dependent. We have derived this in Section 4. This result constitutes the key discrepancy with traditional models like [13] and [15].

Reference [15] gives a spectrum model based on Hill’s model 4, and it has been shown to have a better precision than Nikishov and Nikishov’s model. Here we choose the H4-based spectrum as a basic model for each of the three spectra: the temperature, the salinity, and their co-spectrum.

As described in Ref. [12], eddy diffusivity ratio ${d_r}$dr is not equal to 1, and it is a piecewise function of density ratio ${R_\rho}$Rρ, which varies with thermal expansion coefficient $\alpha$α and saline contraction coefficient $\beta$β. Here we use TEOS-10 toolbox to calculate $\alpha$α and $\beta$β varying with ${\langle}T \rangle $⟨T⟩ and ${\langle}S \rangle $⟨S⟩. In combining with ${d_r}({R_\rho})$dr(Rρ), we will get details about ${d_r}$dr varying with ${\langle}T \rangle $⟨T⟩ and ${\langle}S \rangle $⟨S⟩.

Water dispersion was addressed in the refractive index model of Ref. [5]. It predicts how the refractive index changes with light wavelength, among other parameters, and hence, affects the propagating light. The power spectrum that we developed includes this dispersion-like dependence and, hence, results in the effects of underwater medium on the statistics of propagating light. The effect of the light wavelength on the laser beam scintillation index was experimentally demonstrated in Ref. [7].

According to the results of Ref. [5], the refractive index of still oceanic water is a nonlinear function of temperature and salinity concentration. This implies that the fluctuations in the refractive index are not only related with the fluctuations of temperature and salinity but also change with their average values. Besides, most of the fluid parameters in the power spectrum of refractive-index fluctuations directly depend on the average temperature and average salinity. Thus, the optical signal must also be affected by the water’s average temperature and salinity. Similar effect is also pertinent to the air’s refractive index, as it is also a function of average temperature, but such dependence is very small as compared to the water’s refractive index.
