Paper Abstract

A practical implementation of an airborne lidar for depth mapping in the ocean requires an a priori estimation of the system performance in a given condition. A new version of PC program 'Ocean Scientific', OS2001, provides an effective tool to obtain estimates of lidar effectiveness under different operating parameters such as water depth, water clarity, surface roughness, sunlight illumination, electronic system noise, and optical properties of the atmosphere. OS2001 can also be used to optimize the optical design of the lidar for a given application.
