Depth profiles and polarization characteristics of airborne lidar return signals have been calculated by the Monte Carlo method. We analyze some peculiarities of depth profiles of lidar return signals for a rough air–water interface. The distorting effect of the atmosphere on the lidar return signal structure is evaluated as a function of the geometry of the observations. Calculated results are compared with the data of airborne lidar measurements for λ = 0.53 μm.
