Abstract
Further developments of the comparative analysis methodology applied to capabilities of various lidar systems, from micro-lidars to systems employing the high power lasers, which use different receiving systems are conducted. Following the dimensionless parameterization approach and in order to simplify the capabilities prediction and systems comparison, to improve its clarity and expand applicability, we propose specific ways to generalize optical, energy and excess-noise parameters inherent to lidar atmospheric monitoring, taking into account their possible high-scale variability. The generalized approach is used as an example to compare lidars with PMT/APD/SiPM detectors. Features of the pro-posed approach in different conditions and applications are discussed.
