Abstract

We study the change in the behavior of the modulation transfer function and resolution with changing properties of a turbulent medium. It is shown that the form and the behavior of the functions under study undergo significant changes at the transition from Kolmogorov’s to a helical type of turbulent medium. These changes should be taken into account in developing models of electromagnetic radiation propagation through a medium as well as in interpreting experimental data.
