The paper presents a survey of the experimental and theoretical results of investigations of laser beam intensity fluctuations in a turbulent atmosphere carried out at the Institute of Atmospheric Optics. Spatial and temporal statistical characteristics of coherent laser beams and partially coherent radiation are considered. The data on laser beam intensity fluctuations in the turbulent atmosphere under conditions of precipitation are also given.
