We investigate the effects of environmental stochastic fluctuations on Kerr optical frequency combs. This spatially
extended dynamical system can be accurately studied using the Lugiato-Lefever equation, and we show that when
additive noise is accounted for, the correlations of the modal field fluctuations can be determined theoretically. We
propose a general theory for the computation of these field fluctuations and correlations, which is successfully compared to numerical simulations.
