Paper Abstract

The wandering of laser beam energy center was experimentally investigated on near-land atmosphere range of 980 m length under the weak turbulence. The hypothesis about the independence and normal distribution of horizontal and vertical deviations was checked up by Kolmogorov-Smirnov criterion. In the most cases the experimental histograms don't statistically conform to normal (Gaussian) distribution. It is shown, that the substraction of linear trend from the temporal dependence of angular deviations improves the agreement of experimental data with normal law of distribution.
