Paper Abstract

The theoretical description of incoherent source imaging through an extended turbulent medium is considered. It is demonstrated that the temporal-spatial power spectra of the defocused images contain information about the transverse wind velocity and the refractive turbulence strength along an optical path. The information about wind and turbulence profiles can be recovered from these spectra using a class of quasi one-dimensional natural sources, and a spatial filter in the aperture plane.
