The role of time-dependent pulsations of the wind velocity in the self-action of a laser beam in the atmosphere is studied analytically by the nonlinear phase channel method. Formulas are derived for the average statistical spatial-temporal scales of the light field. It is shown that the temporal fluctuations of the wind velocity degrade both spatial and the temporal structure of the laser radiation. In addition, the correlation radius of the beam in the plane of the wind varies nonmonotonically along the propagation path.
