Abstract
We consider here some peculiarities in ranging with a space- based lidar 'Balkan-1' of the ocean surface for two modes of the space station 'Mir' orientation used during lidar measurement sessions. To demonstrate the peculiarities we have analyzed regular and random fluctuations of the lidar optical axis position in space that occurred in the measured sessions conducted. Analysis made allows us to discuss possible causes of the systematic difference between the ballistic calculated data on range and the values of slant range measured with the lidar in both modes of the station orientation.
