Based on numerical simulations a possibility of sensing clear sky turbulence with an airborne coherent Doppler lidar is analyzed. It is shown that the accuracy of estimating the turbulence level from lidar data depends on the turbulence intensity, signal-to-noise ratio, and on the number of sounding pulses. The conditions are determined under which the detection is possible of clear sky turbulence areas using a coherent Doppler lidar.
