Simultaneous measurements of structure characteristics of atmospheric refraction by optical and acoustic methods

Abstract

Comparative measurements of the turbulence level were carried out in the surface layer by optical and acoustic methods with the use of equipment designed at Zuev Institute of Atmospheric Optics. The turbulence level in the surface layer was studied at a height of 1.65 m. A stable difference between optical and acoustic data has been found.
