We develop a method for transmission of stochastic fields through turbulent media (atmosphere, ocean, biotissues) containing randomly distributed particles. The method is based on the angular spectrum representation of stochastic, statistically stationary, scalar fields, the Rytov perturbation series for propagation in weakly fluctuating media, and the first Born approximation for weak scattering from particulate media. The results for transmission of the deterministic (laser) field may be obtained from our general results as a limiting case.
