The scintillation pattern from a single star can be utilized to provide information on the refractive turbulence along the line of sight. Instruments that provide refractive turbulence parameters are the isoplanometer and the stellar scintillometer. Attention is drawn to the fact that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration theoretical treatment and implementation of the stellar scintillometer is incomplete. The theory is corrected for spectral effects and finite aperture.
