Abstract:

Measurements of the microturbulence in the bottom of the atmospheric boundary layer using a two-ended scintillometer system have been performed at two sites in West Germany more than 500 hours in a hilly area, 180 hours near the coast of the North-Sea. The data are presented as figures signal as function of time. Keywords Refractive Index Structure Parameter, Micro turbulence, Atmospheric scintillation, West Germany, Boundary Layer. The signal monitored corresponds to the refractive index structure parameter Cn2 averaged over the path between a incoherent light source and a signal-receiver. The reported values are proportional to the logarithm of Cn2.
