Scintillations due to Multi-Scale Phase Screens

This paper presents a relatively simple model for the statistics of the random phase modulation incurred by a plane wave when it crosses a multiscale screen whose refractivity fluctuations encompass a dissipative regime, an inertial regime, and an energy-input regime. This model is used to examine b...
