Paper Abstract

Results of statistical simulation of laser sensing of water depth in an experimental water pool by the Monte Carlo method are presented in the report. As a rule, experimental pools have limited sizes. The influence of pool walls on the lidar signal characteristics is analyzed. The power of laser radiation with a wavelength of 0.53 m is estimated depending on sizes of the experimental water pool, water extinction index, laser beam divergence angle, and field of view angle of the receiver. The results obtained demonstrate not too great influence of radiation reflection from the pool walls when the pool size exceed 20 m. Hence, this effect can be disregarded for pools of larger sizes.
