Abstract
In atmospheric and astronomical optics, as well as in applications involving optical propagation through the atmosphere, atmospheric turbulence plays an important role in deterioration of information. Recently, adaptive systems allow correction of aberrations produced by turbulence. In all cases knowledge is necessary of atmospheric turbulence and its characteristic parameters, i.e. inner scale, outer scale and the so called structure constant.
