Abstract
An imaging LIDAR system for measuring vertical profile of the atmospheric refractive index turbulence has been developed and its performance demonstrated. The turbulence profile retrieval technique is based on image motion analysis. In the present work LIDAR measurements of Cn2 vertical profiles are demonstrated. Unlike the existing turbulence models, the experimental results show the various strata and layers in the vertical turbulence profiles.
