Abstract : In this paper, the effect of atmospheric turbulence on laser beam propagation between tops of the high building and the hill behind our university campus at the distance of 1500m is discussed. The typical range of measurable C(n) values, curvature of the laser beam propagation and the focal spots diameter of the laser beam are given, which are agreement with the theory analysis.
