Abstract

The impact of refractive turbulence on monostatic and bistatic lidars is investigated; a phase screen model is used. Experimental verifications are given. For monostatic lidars perturbing lens effects dominate, for bistatic lidars tilt effects dominate. Monostatic systems are the least sensitive to refractive turbulence.
