Abstract

We find the equivalence of the structure constants in non-Kolmogorov and Kolmogorov spectra in a turbulent atmosphere. As the reference point, the spherical wave scintillation index in a non-Kolmogorov medium is used. Relations of the structure constants are found to be functions of the power law of the turbulence spectrum and the Fresnel zone. It will be useful to employ the equivalence of the structure constants in making performance comparisons found with non-Kolmogorov and Kolmogorov spectra.
