Abstract
We consider the problem of estimation of the average wind speed on atmospheric path from measurements of time series of average power of the laser radiation detected through the receiving aperture and the position of the centroid of the image of the laser beam. It is shown that the mutual correlation function of these series has a maximum, whose position characterizes the average speed of the cross wind on the path. The dependence of the coordinates and magnitude of the maximum of the correlation function from the size of the receiving aperture and the distribution of turbulence along the atmospheric path.
