Paper Abstract

A new treatment is presented for light propagation through multilayer turbulence. Equations for the intensity and phase of an observed wavefront re derived together with their validity conditions for both single and multiple layer systems. A method for finding the statistics of observed scintillations is presented together with a detailed calculation for a single layer system.
