Paper Abstract

The objectives of this tutorial are to introduce an optical method of measuring atmospheric turbulent outer scale. The method utilizes the ratio between the correlation functions of the wandering in two perpendicular planes. A simple relationship to obtain the outer scale from the measured correlation functions is established for a particular model of turbulence, the modified Von Karman model. Base on the rational conclusion, an implementary project of measuring atmospheric turbulent outer scale with optical method is designed. At the same time, the plan of the experiment system is given. By predigesting the model, the calculating program of the measurement is written also.
