On the basis of Kolmogorov's theorem, the physical meanings of beams' correlation function on received plane are extended. Approximate formula of channels' across correlation coefficient is deduced from multiple beams through atmosphere. And the scintillation variance of multiple beams is also induced. The result shows along with the channels close to one another, the correlation coefficient increases, and so does the scintillation variance. When the channels completely combine, the scintillation variance of multiple channels is with no difference from that of one channel.
