We analyzed the observations of scintillations in a laser beam (532 nm, ~200 mW power) traveling along a 144 km path at an altitude of 2.2-2.4 km above sea level, just above the atmospheric boundary layer, between the islands of La Palma and Tenerife. The observations were performed during nighttime on 18 July 2011, by means of a telescope with an aperture diameter of 1 m. Strong scintillations were observed. The estimates of spatial spectra and correlation functions indicated that the observed… CONTINUE READING
