A general treatment is given to electromagnetic wave propagation through a non-particle containing, randomly dispersing and absorbing atmosphere. The model, based on weak fluctuation theory, is capable of describing the propagation of five different wave types. Fundamental statistical quantities such as log-amplitude and phase correlation functions, structure functions and the mutual coherence function of a general beam wave are derived. The atmospheric fluctuations are introduced into the model via the von Karman spectrum. Due to its qualifications, the model finds particular application to millimeter and near-millimeter wave propagation.
