(This article belongs to the Special Issue Atmospheric Turbulence Measurements and Calibration)
The structural characteristic of the refractive index of optical waves was calculated from experimental data on the microstructure of the temperature turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer. The experimental data were obtained with an acoustic meteorological radar (sodar), ultrasonic anemometer–thermometer, and meteorological temperature profilometer. Estimates of the structural characteristics for different conditions in the atmospheric boundary layer are presented and were compared with model profiles. View Full-Text
