Abstract : In Tatarski's theory of wave propagation through a turbulent medium, a certain intractable integral has been evaluated numerically. This allows the computation of the cross-correlation of the logarithmic amplitude fluctuations at two spaced receivers, for any arbitrary turbulence distribution along the propagation path. The question of obtaining the turbulence distribution from a known cross correlation function, is also treated. (Author)
