Abstract
We report aircraft-based scintillometry measurements for visible light propagation over near-horizontal paths of 50 to 120 km, at altitudes around 40,000 ft. We present time series and histograms of normalized irradiance variance and path-averaged Cn2 values. We also present temporal power spectra and covariance functions of irradiance, and derive turbulence inner scale values from the shape of the normalized covariance functions.
