By using results from perturbation techniques for weak turbulence and the asymptotic theory for strong turbulence, we develop expressions for the parameters alphaand rho of the I-K distribution in terms of the Rytov variance for plane waves sigma(2)(1)= 1.23C(2)(n) k(7/6) L(11/6) and the inner scale of turbulence parameter l(0). Comparisons of the resulting scintillation index to experimental data and numerical results from the solution of the fourthmoment equation for 3-D propagation show good… CONTINUE READING
