The behavior of scalar beams with nonuniform correlations in isotropic random media is investigated. An example illustrates the fact that the off-axis intensity maximum formed in the transverse cross section of a nonuniformly correlated beam on propagation in free space is suppressed when it passes at sufficiently large distances from its source through the isotropic turbulent atmosphere.
