Paper Abstract

The FLIDAR, built at IROE-CNR in Florence, was the first of a new generation of sensors operating with high spectral resolution both as fluorescence lidar and passive spectrometer. This research includes the sensor development and the study of a suitable data processing for an extensive monitoring of the marine environment. As a result, both the laboratory and field experiments allowed the monitoring of: (1) water column temperature, by the water-Raman spectral shape; (2) oil pollution (oil class identification and thickness), by both the oil fluorescence spectral features and the water-Raman signal intensity; (3) phytoplankton and phytobenthos (identification and stress), by their fluorescence spectral signatures and their spectral behavior; (4) mucillagine, its observation has been carried out directly in the field, addressing a method for its detection. Finally, the FLIDAR has been operating since 1991 from different platforms, such as ship, helicopter, and airplane.
