Author Affiliations +
In this work we investigate optical distortions caused by the existence of a turbulent shear layer in a beam path. We look at several propagation paths and evaluate the loss of resolution caused by the inhomogeneous layer located at various distances from the transmitter. We use our wave-optics code for atmospheric propagation and implement into it propagation through a shear layer. Thus we are able to calculate a combined beam propagation, either emanating from the optical window or incoming from an outside source. The fluctuations of the index of refraction are calculated using the Wye's model
