A numerical model based on Monte Carlo simulation is proposed to study atmospheric turbulence effect on the received image by a remote sensing satellite. In the model, size and distribution of turbulent eddies, size of the subject on the ground and pixels on the receiver plane and wavelength of the optical beam are considered. Displacement of the pixels on the receiver plane is obtained and graphically shown.
