The effect of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) on the propagation of weakly focused laser beams on vertical atmospheric paths has been considered. The energy levels of laser pulse being threshold for SRS have been determined for such paths. It has been found that SRS effect intensifies when laser beam propagates in a downward direction in comparison with its propagation in opposite direction.
