Abstract

A brief account of the studies about light propagation through a turbulent atmosphere in the XX Century will be presented. In this description the emphasis is made on the development of the ideas that permitted the interpretation of the complex processes observed in the Nature and experimented inside a laboratory and outdoors, as well as a description of the observational techniques employed. In 1996 theoretical and experimental research activity on light propagation through a turbulent atmosphere begun in La Plata, Argentina. A review of the experiments, the obtained results and the achieved interpretations, as well as some details of the prospective future activities, will be done.
