Based on the classical optical coherent theory and the extended Huygens-Fresnel integral, ghost imaging with partially coherent light radiation through turbulent atmosphere has been studied. The analytical ghost-imaging formulas have been derived. Based on these formulas and the numerical calculation results, we find that the image quality is influenced by the turbulence strength, the propagation distance, and the coherent parameters of the partially coherent light.
