The results of experimental investigation of distortions of the probing beams propagating in the channel formed by the heating laser beam in an absorbing medium under conditions of the self–induced convection are given. The characteristic relaxation time of the medium and the magnitudes of distortions are determined in the case in which the power of a heating beam and the geometry of the experiment changes.
