Abstract

The behavior of the spectral composition of a typical stochastic beam in a turbulent ocean environ is revealed. The analysis is based on the extended Huygens-Fresnel principle and the coherence theory in the space-frequency domain. The optical source is assumed to be of the Gaussian Schell-model type with a single narrow Gaussian spectral line in the visible region. Optical turbulence in the ocean is assumed to be driven by temperature and salinity fluctuations. It is found that the well-known source correlationinduced spectral shift is compensated by turbulence at sufficiently large distances.
