Paper Abstract

In the present report, results of Monte-Carlo simulation of the spatiotemporal structure of multiply scattered components of lidar return signals are analyzed for monostatic sensing geometry. It is shown that the instantaneous brightness body of multiply scattered radiation may have significant volume and extension in directions toward the receiver, inconsistent with that of forming the singly scattered signal component. Factors showing largest effect on spatial and brightness characteristics of this volume source are established.
