The backoff from capacity due to finite blocklength can be assessed accurately from the channel dispersion. This paper analyzes the dispersion of a single-user, scalar, coherent fading channel with additive Gaussian noise. We obtain a convenient two-term expression for the channel dispersion which shows that, unlike the capacity, it depends crucially on the dynamics of the fading process.
