The criteria for characterization of the scattering coefficient at the cloud boundary are proposed. The scattering coefficient averaged over the laser beam path is calculated. Averaging is performed to one of several specific points in the lidar return from the cloud. The most suitable averaging turned out to be that measured over the interval from the point of the sign modification of the derivative of the signal when the beam enters the cloud to the point of the maximum signal.
