dc.description.abstractOverwater measurements have been made of the turbulence structure constant for index of refraction, C^^ , by means of scintillation, for comparison with predictions of C^'^ based on meteorological measurements carried out at the same time, during the "Monterey Aerosol Generation and Transport" (MAGAT-8O) experiment, 27 April to 9 May, 198O. Scintillation was chosen as the optical m.easurement because it gives heaviest weight to points on the optical path near the center of the path, m.inimizing the shoreline influence. The overwater path length was 13.3 km. The light source was a 10.6 micrometer CO2 laser. This combination of range and wavelength was adequate to avoid saturation effects.en_US
