Paper Abstract

A Monte Carlo-type mathematical model is used to simulate a laser transmitter and receiver system (LIDAR) in a marine environment. Simulations include a limited receiver aperture and water properties typical of coastal waters. Results are presented for impulse responses from laser pulses directed downward, reflected from the ocean bottom, and detected by a coaxial receiver with fields-of-view from 5 to 480 milliradians.
