The theory and observations of the optical propagation effects of the clear turbulent atmosphere are reviewed, with particular attention to those characteristics most important to the designer of an optical communication system. Among the phenomena considered are the variance, probability distribution, spatial covariance, aperture smoothing, and temporal power spectrum of intensity fluctuations, and similar quantities for phase fluctuations and angle of arrival.
