Abstract:

Some factors limiting the applicability of the phase-screen method to simulation of scintillation spectra at stellar occultation by the Earth's atmosphere are considered, and necessity of using more complicated models, like that based on the first approximation of the method of smooth perturbations, is demonstrated. The results obtained from computer simulations using power-law correlation function of atmospheric refractive index inhomogeneities are presented. The dependence of the scintillation spectra on the receiver's position and direction of its motion is studied.
