Paper Abstract

We develop a dynamic stochastic model for refractive turbulence based on a linearization of the Navier-Stokes equations. The model is needed to estimate wind profiles from measurements of point to point propagation of a laser beam. We outline the model, which is meant to be an improvement on Taylor's hypothesis, and explore its implications in terms of the second order steady state statistics.
