The results of measurement of signal-to-noise ratio of a coherent lidar echo signal scattered by a diffuse screen are presented. Measurements were carried out under different refractive turbulence strength in the atmosphere. It is shown for the first time in the experiment that the mean power of echo signal of a coherent lidar increases with the turbulence strength.
