Distortions of the coherence and phase spectra of the aerosol lidar returns due to the noise have been studied theoretically and experimentally. An analysis has been carried out for the section of the sounding path considered as a linear system with one input and one output. A formula has been derived that allows one to obtain the unbiased estimate of the wind velocity from the phase spectra of lidar returns mixed with noise.
