The interaction of femtosecond laser pulses with various-composition liquid droplet aerosol, as well as with individual particles has been investigated experimentally. Acoustic and optical methods were applied to study the energy decay of femtosecond pulses traveling through the aerosol layer and the energy losses of filaments formed at different focusing. It was found experimentally that the nonlinear interaction with atmospheric aerosol does not affect significantly the energy characteristics of radiation.
