This paper presents the results of numerical and experimental investigations concerning the effect of optical inhomogeneities of different origin on the polarization characteristics of lidar signal. It is shown that the use of polarized radiation increases the amount of information obtained from the experimental data. Numerical estimates have been made for a lidar operating at the wavelength l = 0.53 mm. Field experiments in the region of the Barents Sea have been carried out at the same wavelength.
