Abstract:

Refractive index structure parameter data c recorded at 4, 8, 16, and 32 m heights over a desert basin three test periods of about two hours each near sunrise or sunset were analyzed. C between 4 and 8 m was found to be relatively constant. C at 8, 16, and 32 m were least-squares fit to cc sub 0 zz sub 0 to the MTH power over 5 and 15 minute averaging periods.
