SLODAR (SLOpe Detection And Ranging) methods recover the atmospheric turbulence profile from crosscorrelations of wavefront sensor (WFS) measurements, based on known turbulence models. Our work grows
out of several experiments showing that turbulence statistics can deviate significantly from the classical Kolmogorov/von K´arm´an models, especially close to the ground. We present a novel SLODAR-type method which
simultaneously recovers both the turbulence profile in the atmosphere and the turbulence statistics at the ground
layer – namely the slope of the spatial frequency power law. We consider its application to outer scale (L0)-
reconstruction and investigate the limits of the joint estimation of such parameters.
