Marine Observation Lidar

Masahiko Sasano


Remote sensing using pulsed lasers (lidar) has mainly been applied to atmospheric observation, but it can also be applied to marine observation. In this chapter, lidar applications to marine observation, including bathymetry, detection of oil spills on sea surfaces, water quality inspection, monitoring of marine organisms, are presented. The present state and future prospects on these applications are presented.
