In both models (1.5), (1.6), the relative strength of the turbulence in an atmospheric layer at height H (i.e., the dependence on H) is described by a measured constant Cn(H).
Earth has a stratosphere because of ozone, which absorbs the Sun's ultraviolet rays and heats up this atmospheric layer above it.
In this work a method proposed by [18] is used, which considers the energy balance of the soil substrate, a slab layer of soil, and the surface atmospheric layer [14,18].
