Paper Abstract

We shall consider here the basic theory used in determining intensity fluctuations and the fourth-order coherence function in random media like the atmosphere or ocean. The basic governing equations will be presented for light propagation in the atmosphere and high frequency sound propagation in the ocean. Perturbation solutions will be given, and the saturation effect will be discussed. Recent numerical work will be reviewed.
