Recommendations for the use of aerosol turbulent lidar for research in the atmospheric boundary layer are presented. The peculiarity of the turbulent lidar is that the sounding path angle should not exceed 10°. It is found that the optimal angle is 4°, at which it is possible to determine the structural constant of the refractive index in the range of altitudes from 100 m to 1 km. This range can be extended by 2 times if sounding at two or three angles to the horizon.
