SLODAR (SLOpe Detection And Ranging) methods recover the atmospheric turbulence profile from cross-correlations of wavefront sensor (WFS) measurements, based on known turbulence models. Our work grows out of several experiments showing that turbulence statistics can deviate significantly from the classical Kolmogorov/ von Kármán models, especially close to the ground. We present a novel SLODAR-type method which simultaneously recovers both the turbulence profile in the atmosphere and the turbulence statistics at the ground layer - namely the slope of the spatial frequency power law. We consider its application to outer scale (L0)- reconstruction and investigate the limits of the joint estimation of such parameters.
