Feasibility of application of the optimal Markovian filtration to trifrequency laser sounding of the atmospheric temperature by the Mason technique for a stochastic model of temperature fluctuations smoothed by a laser sounding pulse has been demonstrated. An algorithm of Calman–Bucy filtration has been synthesized that allows one to obtain an optimal estimate of a fluctuating temperature profile and its variance simultaneously with the maximum likelihood estimates of the aerosol and molecular scattering coefficients as well as of the density of a sounded gas.
