Paper Abstract

Some peculiarities in ranging with the space-based lidar BALKAN of the Earth surface are considered for two modes of the space station MIR orientation, which were used during measurement experiments in 1995 - 1996, and some results, that were presented earlier, are refined. Ranging of the ocean surface, which considered as reference at the first measurement stage, allows one to estimate a contribution of various sources to the measurement accuracy. The probable causes of the systematic difference between the values of slant range measured with the lidar and ballistic calculated data on range are discussed.
