Abstract:

The conditions of existence and quantitative manifestations of the effects caused by correlation between oncoming waves in laser detection and ranging through a turbulent atmosphere are studied in the paper as functions of turbulent strength, reflectivity and size of objects, and angular divergence of illuminating laser beam. Possible ways of their consideration and practical application to the development of as laser radar and lidar systems as new methods of sensing of the atmospheric turbulence are examined.
