Paper Abstract

This paper deals with theoretical and experimental studies of optical waves that compare different models of the atmospheric turbulence spectra. For inhomogeneous optical paths in the atmosphere we introduce the term the turbulence spectrum averaged over the path and present an analysis of some models of spectral density of the refractive index fluctuations for the turbulent atmosphere. The models are compared on the basis of calculation and measurements of statistical characteristics of phase fluctuations of optical waves propagating in the turbulent atmosphere.
