Two questions are discussed. The first is the effect of turbulence intermittency on wave propagation. Such effects as bursts of scattering intensity or a sudden improvement of the image quality in turbulent media are connected with the turbulence intermittency. The second one is the increase of mean backscattering from objects surrounded by the random medium with large-scale inhomogeneities.
