An analytical approach for a calculation of the parameters of autodyne lidar is presented. Approximate expressions connecting the absorption coefficient and the distance to the remote target with both the lidar parameters and the measured quantities are obtained. These expressions allow one to retrieve easily the information about the atmosphere from the experimental data.
