The theoretical findings are presented on the variance of intensity fluctuations, both in acting and probing beams, within a water aerosol when cleared with a pulsed radiation the entrant intensity of which is fluctuating. The initial intensity fluctuations are shown to be noticeably increased due to non-linear interaction with the medium.
