Paper Abstract

Recently, a heuristic model for scintillation in moderate to strong turbulence was developed. It is based on the idea of filter functions that eliminate scale sizes that lose their ability to affect a laser beam as it propagates. This approach allows the validity of the Rytov approximation to be extended into moderate to strong turbulence. In this paper, we investigate applying this theory to second order statistics.
