Paper Abstract

We present measurements of the atmospheric refractive index structure parameter Cn2 and the inner scale lo made with a SLS-20 scintillometer manufactured by Scintec GmbH. The measurements are compared to measurements of scintillation made with a simple in-house built scintillometer and to Cn2 derived from measurements of CT2 made with differential temperature probes. We found that the combination of lo and Cn2 data provided by the SLS-20 allowed us to calculate the log-amplitude variance of the scintillation measured with the in-house scintillometer with good agreement. Poor agreement was found between the SLS-20 and temperature probe Cn2 data primarily because of the limited frequency response of the probes.
