Abstract

The evolution of the scintillation index of a spherical wave propagating through randomly varying profiles of the strength and the smallest scale of turbulence is calculated. These parameters were taken to be jointly log normal along the range. The specific parameters of the probability-density function that were used were taken from stratospheric experiments conducted by the U.S. Air Force.
