The representativeness problem of measurements of m pulsed coherent?the atmospheric turbulence energy dissipation rate by a 2- Doppler lidar, scanning in vertical plane, is investigated experimentally. The comparison of results of simultaneous measurements of the dissipation rate at various heights of the atmospheric boundary layer by the lidar and four sonic anemometers has allowed to find out that the lidar estimate has insignificant bias and its relative error does not exceed 25%.
