Abstract:

This thesis describes the conversion of a computer program form Fortran IV used by the CDC computer to Fortran IV compatible with the Naval Postgraduate School IBM 3033 system. The converted program, called TURB2, estimates the magnitude of the refractive index structure parameter, sq Cnz, for a dry atmosphere in horizontal layers. The altitudes of the layers depend upon the corresponding altitudes of conventional meteorological rawinsonde balloon data. The data input is a formatted file called TURB2 DATAIN and the output consists of the value of dry sq Cn at each altitude along with a graph of log Cn2 vs. altitude. Additional keywords Subroutines Computer files Electromagnetic radiation.
