Compensation effect of intensity change induced by differential seeing: the area sampled by the black rays is expanded in the image plane, distributing the light over a larger area and thus reducing the flux, but this is compensated for by a corresponding increase in the area of the wavefront that is collected by the telescope at the height of the seeing layer.
