Abstract
Results of experimental studies of the laser beam thermal blooming in the atmosphere are discussed. The influence both an atmospheric path and zone of stagnation between the laser source and the optical system on the beam defocusing are analyzed. The possibility of adaptive correction of distortions acquired by a beam on the initial section of a path between a laser and the transmitting aperture is analyzed in the paper as well.
