Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

This work is an extension of previous work, on plane waves propagating through uniformly turbulent air, to results for spherical waves. The main result is a saturation-regime asymptote for the log-amplitude variance <δχ2>, namely, 1.25 (κm7/3L3Cn2)1/6. Comparisons with recent data are made.
