Water tank experiments and numerical simulations are employed to investigate the characteristics of light propagation in the convective boundary layer (CBL). The CBL, namely the mixed layer (ML), was simulated in the water tank. A laser beam was set to horizontally go through the water tank, and the image of two-dimensional (2D) light intensity fluctuation formed on the receiving plate perpendicular to the light path was recorded by CCD. The spatial spectra of both horizontal and vertical light intensity fluctuations were analyzed, and the vertical distribution profile of the scintillation index (SI) in the ML was obtained. The experimental results indicate that 2D light intensity fluctuation was isotropically distributed in the cross section perpendicular to the light beam in the ML. Based on the measured temperature fluctuations along the light path at different heights, together with the relationship between temperature and refractive index, the refractive index fluctuation spectra and the corresponding turbulence parameters were derived. The obtained parameters were applied in a numerical model to simulate light propagation in the isotropic turbulence field. The calculated results successfully reproduce the characteristics of light intensity fluctuation observed in the experiments.
