We study the parameter estimation problem for the Gamma-Gamma turbulence model for free-space optical communication. An estimation scheme for the shape parameters of the Gamma-Gamma distribution is proposed based on the concept of fractional moments and convex optimization. To improve the estimation performance, we further propose a modified scheme which exploits the relationship between the Gamma-Gamma shape parameters in free-space optical communication. Simulation results reveal that the modified estimation scheme can achieve satisfactory performance for a wide range of turbulence conditions.
