An analytical/numerical technique is presented that provides a solution to the parabolic wave equation and allows for direct calculation of the received time-domain signal after propagation of a wide-bandwidth waveform through a turbulent ionized medium. The results are applicable to the case of satellite communication or to radar observation through a frequency-selective transionospheric propagation channel. A number of examples of the application of multiple phase-screen (MPS) techniques are given that enhance intuitive understanding of wave propagation. Numerical predictions of scattering through a striated barium cloud are compared to experimental observations. Good agreement is also shown between MPS calculations and theoretical results for cases in both weak and strong scattering regimes.
