Paper Abstract

During the summer of 1996 a series of field trials were conducted in the Florida Keys and Bahama Islands to evaluate the ability of a unique laser line scan system to measure and map the fluorescent characteristics of coral reef environments. Typical fluorescence maps that were obtained are presented and compared with monochrome and RGB color images of the same reefs. The monochrome images were obtained with the laser line scan system simuftaneously with the fluorescent maps. The RGB images, which were also obtained with the laser line scan system, were recorded in the same location on a subsequent thai.
