Feasibilities of determination of the wind turbulence parameters from data measured by the Stream Line coherent Doppler lidar under different atmospheric conditions have been studied experimentally. It has been found that the spatial structure of the turbulence is described well by the von Karman model in the layer of intensive mixing. From the lidar measurements at night under stable conditions the estimation of the outer scale of turbulence with the use of the von Karman model is not possible.
