© OSA 2019 © 2019 The Author(s) Optical propagation is strongly influenced b y t he n umber concentration, size distribution, thermodynamic phase, and spatial distribution of particles in atmospheric clouds. These properties have been investigated in the field using an airborne digital holographic instrument. A laboratory facility has also been developed, in which optical propagation is being investigated in steady-state turbulent-cloud conditions.
