To approbate the technique of laser sounding of clouds as the means of satellite underflight measurements, two experiments have been conducted from an aircraft flying over the Barents Sea along complex routes. The total length of the routes was about several hundred kilometers. Cloud fields were studied at the stages of their formation and dissipation. Power spectra of fluctuations of the cloud top height have been calculated. It is shown that they differ for different types of clouds.
