1. Introduction The scintillometry method is based on atmospheric refraction. For optical waves, the refraction is dominated by atmospheric temperature fluctuations, so one can confidently obtain the structure parameter of temperature . The understanding of itself is important for astronomical seeing and ground-to-satellite communications ( Travouillon et al. 2003 ; Tunick 2005 ), as well as understanding turbulence itself ( Coulter and Doran 2002 ). But the emphasis in scintillometer

frequency modulated–continuous wave (FM–CW) radar operating at 10-cm wavelength for this project ( Johnston et al. 2012 ). Instead of transmitting a pulsed signal, the FM–CW radar transmits continuously, which requires separate antennas to transmit and receive so the transmitter does not saturate the receiver. The range of the targets is determined by changing the transmitted frequency during the observations. When the echoes are received, the frequency is measured and converted into range. Constant
