The theory that tropospheric scintillation is associated with turbulence in clouds leads to an asymmetrical distribution of signal level fluctuations in decibels, in contrast to the commonly used symmetrical model. The asymmetry of measured signal fluctuations from Spino d'Adda is evaluated and it is found that the measured short-term distribution is in good agreement with the asymmetrical model
