Paper Abstract

The paper suggests a model for predicting the behavior of the optical characteristics of a medium that determine the character of laser beam propagation in the atmosphere. These are first of all the refractive index and the refractive-index-structure parameter as well as the wind velocity, kinetic turbulence energy, dissipation energy speed and other meteorological parameters that are important in the laser propagation problem. The prediction of the refractive index and the refractive-indexstructure parameter is based on the known equations of the theory of wave propagation in a turbulent atmosphere and a mathematical model for short-range forecast of evolution of local meteorology and turbulent structure of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL).
