Abstract:

This report presents the development of analytical expressions that describe some effects of turbulence on the performance of a mobile parametric receiver. The report is organized into three general topics 1 summaries of literature pertaining to parametric reception, turbulence, and wave propagation in inhomogeneous media 2 theoretical analysis 3 theoretical estimates of the effects of turbulence on parametric reception. It is concluded that turbulence can produce significant amplitude and phase fluctuations in the acoustic signal detected by the parametric receiver, but that experiments are required to determine the level of fluctuations that might be expected in a practical application.
