Abstract
We report scintillometer measurements for near-infrared propagation over a 51.4-km path, at an average altitude of 760 m over mountainous desert terrain. We present time series and histograms of normalized irradiance variance and path-averaged C2n values. We compare the results with an average vertical C2n profile constructed from past balloon measurements. We also present preliminary results on the temporal power spectra of normalized irradiance.
