Abstract

The importance of radio-wave scintillations introduced by tropospheric turbulence for both telecommunication and meteorological research is indicated. Amplitude, phase and phase-difference measurements of scintillation were performed at 30 GHz on an 8.2 km line-of-sight path. The measuring systems are described, and theory is presented to derive the refractive-index structure parameter and wind velocity from radio-wave scintillations and in-situ measurements. -from Authors
