Recent advances in laser remote sensing
Author(s): Frank E. Hoge

Paper Abstract

Current terrestrial and hydrographic laser remote sensing research and applications are briefly reviewed. New progress in airborne oceanic lidar instrumentation and applications is then highlighted. Topics include the unique role of airborne active-passive (laser- solar) correlation spectroscopy methods in oceanic radiative transfer studies. Based on a perceived need for high resolution, improved specificity, and wider range of applicability than fluorescence methods, laser-induced resonance Raman and atomic emission spectra of oceanic constituents are suggested.
