Abstract

A phenomenological model is developed for the strength and spatial width of the coherent intensity peak of backscatter produced by reciprocal path scattering through atmospheric turbulence. The model is applied to a ground-based, monostatic laser radar tracking a space target under the condition of optical atmospheric turbulence saturation.
