A commercial long-range scintillometer was deployed over a 2-km path in False Bay, South Africa, for a timeframe of one year. The turbulence data retrieved from the instrument are compared to turbulence parameters inferred from micrometeorological data and models, and the relation between experimental and model-data is explored.
