Paper Abstract

The results of investigations of vertical profile of turbulent inhomogeneities of the air refractive index using NCEP / NCAR Reanalysis data are discussed in this paper. Model used for calculations is based on the spectral features of atmospheric turbulence characteristics in a wide range of scales. The differences of the shapes of small-scale atmospheric turbulence spectra in the free atmosphere and the boundary layer are in the focus of the paper. The obtained results may allow us to estimate characteristics of turbulent and, thus, parameters of adaptive optics systems.
