Scattering of electromagnetic waves by turbulence is considered. It is shown that Doppler velocity (the ratio of Doppler shift and Bragg wave number) includes two terms: The first is the mean radial velocity in the scattering volume, and the second is what we call the “correlation velocity,” caused by a correlation between the fluctuations of velocity and those of refractive index. The correlation velocity is proportional to the imaginary part of the Bragg wave vector component of the three… CONTINUE READING
