Abstract:

The intensity fluctuations of a narrow divergent laser beam were measured in snowfalls on 130, 390, 650, and 964 m paths. It is shown that the fluctuations became stronger and then saturate with increase of the optical thickness of snowfall. The saturation increases as the maximum size of the snowflakes increases.
