A general formalism for describing the radiation transfer in a medium with arbitrary velocity fields is presented. It is demonstrated that classical microturbulence and mesoturbulent models based on Markov processes can be considered as the two lowest order members within a hierarchy of model equations with an increasing degree of approximation to reality. Some preliminary results concerning the relevance of low order model equations are presented.
