Abstract

Deviations of experimental data on the effect of atmospheric turbulence on electromagnetic wave propagation from a standard Kolmogorov (or Obukhov-Kohnogorov) model are examined from the standpoint of the behavior of atmospheric passive scalar spectrum. It is pointed out that these deviations are not random and can be explained on the basis of today's ideas of passive scalar behavior in the atmosphere. This approach allows us to view electromagnetic radiation transfer in random media in a new way and to make the necessary steps for developing a generalized model of this phenomenon.
