Abstract

The measurement of the strength of atmospheric optical turbulence by use of a modified generalized SCIDAR (scintillation detection and ranging) inversion technique is outlined and demonstrated. This new method for normalizing and inverting scintillation covariances incorporates the geometry specific to generalized SCIDAR. Examples of profiles from two astronomical observation sites are presented.
