25 May 2005 Mean irradiance: experimental and theoretical results
Author Affiliations +
Mean irradiance data from a field experiment conducted jointly by the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation, the Office of Naval Research, and the University of Central Florida is presented. The experiment was conducted in May 2004 in Adelaide, Australia. The propagation path was characterized by conditions of moderate to strong irradiance fluctuations. The data is compared to existing theoretical results and a new theoretical result developed in this paper. The new theoretical result is based on a modified Rytov method that extends the validity of the Rytov method into moderate to strong irradiance fluctuation conditions.
