In this paper we discuss the influence of the refraction on the geometry of monostatic and bistatic acoustic sounding of the atmosphere. The relations between the geometry parameters and the profiles of atmospheric temperature and wind velocity were derived using linear approximation of geometric acoustics for an inhomogeneous moving medium. Some results of model calculations made using these relations and numerical estimates of their accuracy characteristics can also be found in the paper.
