Abstract:

This annual report gives a summary of the work completed and underway on the contract covering the period from September 1, 1978 to June 1, 1979. The work is directed to the investigation of the transmission characteristics of optical waves with wavelengths in the range of 1-15 micron through various atmospheric conditions including clouds, fog, turbulence, rain, hail, snow, and inhomogeneous layers. Progress was made in the areas of the scattering patterns of actual fog, cw plane wave solution, beam wave solution, and pulse wave solution of the optical transmission characteristics through fog.
