Mean energy and power of a return signal of an airborne lidar operating at wavelength 0.5 μm under conditions of the wind–driven sea waves are estimated by the Monte Carlo method. Their dependence on the wind velocity varying in the range 1 ≤ V ≤ 7 m/s, on the optical conditions, and on the experimental geometry is studied. The formation of lidar return received from the underwater is shown to be primarily determined by the sea surface state.
