Stationary clearing up of water aerosol by a laser beam at lateral movement of the medium relative to the beam is investigated. The deterioration in performance of clearing up is shown to take place under thermal blooming and diffraction of the beam. The boundaries of clearing up regions are determined (from given levels of intensity transmission in the beam center) in the space of similarity factors. The specific examples in physical variables are given in the paper.
