Paper Abstract

Based on the algorithm for simulation of the spherical wave propagation in the divergent coordinate system, a program is developed for simulation of the spherical wave propagation in the turbulent atmosphere along paths with reflection. The paper analyzes the statistics of the spherical wave reflected from a plane mirror and compares the results obtained with the theoretical results derived from the asymptotic consideration for the conditions of weak and strong optical turbulence. The features of manifestation of the correlation of counterpropagating waves in the region transient from the weak to the strong turbulence are discussed.
