The theoretical and experimental aspects of the analysis of amplitude scintillations as a possible practical remote-sensing tool of atmospheric turbulence parameters with special emphasis on earth-space paths are explored. Theoretical studies and experimentation reveal that the scintillation variance when complemented with spectral analysis and suitable modeling of the path leads to realistic values of the parameters. A layered turbulent structure has been studied in particular, the strategy of data analysis is given in detail, and the limitations due to the cross-path wind profile are discussed.
