Scintillation Index Calculations Using an Altitude Dependent Structure Constant

We present calculations of the scintillation index that result from a plane wave of light impinging on the atmosphere. Calculations are made using the two-scale theory and assuming a Kolmogorov structure function with an altitude-dependent structure constant. A plot of the scintillation index for ty...
