Author Affiliations +
In this paper we undertake an attempt to take into account the effect of the underlying terrain (including mountainous terrain) in the regions of location of astronomical receivers on the variance of the image jitter for extraterrestrial objects. It is shown that taking into account the underlying terrain it is possible to achieve a good agreement between theoretical and experimental data that deviate significantly from the well-known theoretical secant law.
