Abstract

The cross-flow orientation of an optically active turbulent field was determined by Fourier transforming the wander of a laser beam propagating in the ocean. A simple physical model for the measured effect is offered, and numerical simulations are performed. The simulations are in good agreement with measurements, validating the assumptions made in the model.
