Abstract
In recent years several extensive data sets have been collected to characterize horizontal laser propagation in a maritime environment. We report on data collected on a 1.35-km range over an arm of San Diego Bay. We analyze various atmospheric turbulence features of the optical propagation data, and we compare the experimental results with numerical wave-optics simulations. The goals are (a) to extract atmospheric turbulence strength descriptors for the period of record, and (b) to assess the ability of wave-optics simulation to reproduce the experimental results. We comment on the degrees of freedom available when comparing simulation and measurement, due to the lack of completely comprehensive measurement data.
