Abstract
Calculations of photon counting distributions and false probabilities are compared with measured data obtained using very weak laser pulses propagated over 10-km horizontal paths. Good agreement is obtained between theory and experiment using various simplifying assumptions and values of the refractive-index structure constant Cn2 lying within an expected range.
