Abstract

By representing pulsed spherical waves as a Fourier integral, calculations are made of the effect of the atmosphere on an aribtrarily shaped pulse as it propagates from transmitter to receiver. The turbulent medium is shown to impart fluctuations due to the time-varying property of the medium, to dispersive characteristics, and time-independent nature of the scattered volume of the pulse wave. A study is also made of the statistics of the temporal and spatial fluctuations of the pulse.
