Paper Abstract

Numerical data about the sensitivity of the echo-signal to variations in aerosol scattering coefficient define, as is well known, the possibility of solving the inverse problem of atmosphere laser sensing. In this work we analyze the influence of statistic fluctuations of the vertical distribution of the aerosol scattering coefficient on the time distribution of the LIDAR echo-signal in the case of a cloudless atmosphere. We obtain time distributions of intensity, averaged over random instances of aerosol scattering coefficient fields and the corresponding correlation coefficients.
