Abstract
A wavelet transform method for analyzing the dynamic effects of atmospheric turbulence on infrared digital imagery is presented. Typical results are illustrated by applying the method to simulated turbulence induced distortions and to data from field experiments. Comparisons of this method to the more traditional short-time Fourier transform and long exposure (non-dynamic) atmospheric modulation transfer function (AMTF) methods are made to show the utility of the technique.
