Abstract
Investigations of the dynamics of turbulent characteristics were carried out for different tracking paths based on theoretical equations. A multi-screen model and single-screen one for turbulent atmosphere have been constructed for numerical simulation of laser beam propagation along atmospheric paths within the framework of the paraxial approximation. These models are suitable for simulation of the propagation along both homogeneous and inhomogeneous paths. Within this model, the Fried radius, the scintillation index, the effective beam radius, and the coherence length of radiation were calculated. The values obtained in the numerical experiment were compared with those calculated analytically.
