Paper Abstract

This paper overviews a recent advancement in computer simulating of the performance of lidar sounding and imaging systems. A new iterative technique to retrieve the inherent optical characteristics from lidar waveforms is presented. A few approaches needed for simulation of the high spatial resolution 3D imaging in the surf zone and very shallow waters (regard to the forward pulse stretching, the depth correlation of the random realizations of the background images, including elevations in the sea surface model) as well as modeling of optical properties of bubbles and sediments are briefly discussed.
