The effect of interference of the waves scattered by aerosol particles on the magnitude of lidar signals has been studied. It has been shown that in the case of collimated sensing laser beams and coherent detection of the return signals the interference between multiply scattered waves can result in nearly twofold increase of the lidar signal.
