To evaluate the effects of intermittency and stratification on propagation of laser beams, we analyze experimental radiosonde profiles using complete ensemble empirical mode decomposition. First, we extract intermittency and stratification at different scales from the original Cn2 profiles. Second, we establish an intrinsic optical turbulence model (IOTM), which includes fine structures. Third, we calculate several turbulence moments using IOTM. The results quantitatively evaluate the effects of variations at different scales on typical parameters relevant to optical turbulence effects.
