Paper Abstract

Lidar investigation of the upper seawater layer allows obtaining in real-time and without disturbing the aquatic medium the continuous fluorescence spectra of seawater in visible range of light. These spectra provide the information on concentration of Chloropyll a (Chl a) and colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) as well as allow distinguishing coastal and open-sea waters. Additionally a comparison between the results of Chi a concentrations obtained by classical laboratory method (on the water samples taken from the surface) and lidar in situ method allows detecting and confirming different (surface) water masses.
