Paper Abstract

The article presents a review of the existing remote snesing methods for experimental study of coherent structures in the fields of temperature, wind speed, refractive index, and admixture concentrations. The physical principles, underlying some methods developed recently are described. The use for these purposes such devices as sodar, lidar, radar, scidar, radiometer, and also occultation techniqes and tomographic techniques is discussed. The advantages and restrictions of different methods, altitude ranges of their applicatbility, and also representativeness of the results obtained are considered. The examples of visualization of vortical, layered and wavy structures and experimental estimates of their parameters are given. The origin of structured turbulence in the atmosphere is discussed. A classification of various forms of coherent structures is offered. Systemization of recently published experimental estimates of their parameters in the lower and middle atmosphere is made.
