Abstract Two laser beams, one argon (5145 A) and one CO2 (10.6 microns), were propagated over vertical path from the ground to receivers located above the atmosphere, and the scintillation of the beams was measured. Simulataneous measurement of the state of turbulence along the path permitted the comparison of scintillation statistics with theory. The effects of atmospheric turbulence over a vertical or near-vertical path are discussed.
