Paper Abstract

The problem of the probability density function (PDF) of the irradiance fluctuations of an electromagnetic wave propagating through a turbulent atmosphere is being investigated for several decades. Tatarskii and deWolf succesfully investigated the cases of weak and very strong turbulence. The intermediate regime still imposes a number of physical questions in spite of considerable progress in the last few years. Many models have been proposed and studied [1-7], none is complete and some of them impose difficulties in understanding the physics of the process.
