Paper Abstract

Reconstruction of wind profile based on the turbulent spatio-temporal statistics of reflected spherical wave focused by the receiving telescope is considered. Both the expression for the spatial temporal correlation function and spectrum and the algorithm of wind profiling based on the spatio-temporal spectrum of intensity of a wave scattered off an infinite diffuse target are presented. Computer simulations show wind profiles reconstruction by the developed algorithm.
