Algorithms are described for retrieving the profile of attenuation factor (or transmittance) along the beampath from lidar returns. The inversion procedure preassumes the validity of single–scattering approximation and the power–law dependence of backscattering on the coefficient attenuation. Two different algorithms of retrieval of the profile of attenuation coefficient are discussed. Examples of experimental data are given.
