Abstract

Processing and analysis routines giving normalized moments of optical intensity, structure functions of wind velocity and temperature, central moments, and various measures of the turbulence parameter, C2N, are presented. Rapid analog-to-digital data conversion and storage to implement this analysis using MINC 11/23 with RT11 operating system are discussed. Coding for file organization and implementation of processing routines on the VAX 11/750, VMS operating system are also discussed.
