Abstract

Most of the processes occurring in the atmosphere, such as the transport of water vapor and atmospheric dust, heat transfer, formation of clouds, and precipitation, are very closely connected with the turbulent nature of atmospheric motion. Atmospheric turbulence has a significant effect on the propagation of sound, light, and radio waves, and also on the flight of aircraft.
