Abstract

The effects of refractive turbulence on ground-based verification of the far-field performance of coherent Doppler lidar are determined with numerical simulation and compared with the first-order terms of a theoretical expansion. The collimated small-beam far-field test has better performance than the focused-beam test. For typical ground-based conditions, higher-order terms of the theoretical expansion are required for convergence.
