Paper Abstract

The estimates of absorption of CO-, HF- and DF-lasers multifrequency radiation along extended atmospheric paths are presented in the paper. Peculiarities in the behavior of absorption characteristics depending on the path profile, spectrum of the laser emission, and meteorological conditions are analyzed. We also analyze the influence of thermal nonlinearity on the beam characteristics.
