Author(s): Zuzana Chladova; Ondrej Fiser; Vladimir Brazda; Jaroslav Svoboda

Paper Abstract

Our correlation analysis has shown promising and surprisingly good dependence of optical signal attenuation on sonic temperature, which is shown and discussed in this study. This discovered dependence is derived from measurements (periods with fog and rain events were excluded) and presented in the form of scatter plots. It is possible to express roughly that the attenuation decreases with the sonic temperature (negative correlation coefficient). Trying to understand our results, we added the explanation of the physical quantity sonic temperature in this contribution.
