Abstract
Possibility of sounding of the clear-air turbulence by airplane coherent Doppler lidar is analyzed based on the numerical simulation. It is shown that the accuracy of estimation of the strength of turbulence from the lidar data depends on the intensity of turbulence, the signal-to-noise ratio, and number of sounding pulses. The conditions are determined for which detecting of the clear-air turbulence zones with the coherent Doppler lidar is possible.
