|Title:||Evaluation of refractivity profile using Hankel transform as a technique|
|Authors:||Raina, M K|
|Abstract:||Numerical evaluation of the Hankel transform is felt to produce a desired computational tool for analysis of the refractivity profiles. The idea is to use the Hankel transform to model the auto-correlation function given for Kolmogorov turbulence. Conversely, a model of the auto-correlation function is used and, by means of an inverse Hankel transform, average refractivity spectrum of the atmosphere along the path evaluated. Based on the propagation measurements on the satellite downlink and the experimentally obtained amplitude scintillation spectra, a path integrated value for the turbulence intensity characterized by the refractive index structure constant C2n has been evaluated.|
