pcAOP is a forum for the presentation of research in the physics of light propagation, optical remote sensing, and EO/IR effects in either the atmosphere or ocean, to include distributed volume turbulence, boundary layer effects, gravity waves, vortex shedding, stably stratified turbulence, persistent eddies, and cloud/aerosol/vapor scattering and absorption, refractive effects, such as mirages and over-the-horizon viewing, as well as characterization of these phenomena.  


  • Air/water distributed volume turbulence characterization, modeling and simulation
  • Meteorological/oceanographic phenomena
  • Atmospheric and underwater optical and electro-magnetic field propagation 
  • Interaction of structured spin and orbital angular momentum of light with turbulence 
  • Classic and quantum free-space optical communications through turbulence
  • Conventional and unconventional imaging techniques for turbulent air/water
  • Remote sensing for characterizing the atmosphere or ocean
  • Turbulent media in the presence of scatterers
  • Models and measurements of aerosols and their impact including absorption, extinction, transmission and thermal blooming
  • Methods and instrumentation for atmospheric or oceanic characterization
  • Neural networks for atmospheric/oceanic characterization and mitigation
