Abstract

The development of methods for active optical sounding of the wind velocity vector on the basis of scattered signal correlation requires a detailed study of the inhomogeneity parameters of the scattering properties of the atmosphere. However, at present the information on inhomogeneity parameters is mainly limited by stating the fact of their presence and reporting on the contrast value of atmospheric scattering irregularities under definite atmospheric conditions. The knowledge of inhomogeneity sales and their lifetimes is also extremely important for correlation sounding of wind velocity. The present paper gives the results of experimental investigations of inhomogeneity parameters in the ground layer of the atmosphere.
