Paper Abstract

The proposed airborne remote sensing instrument LIMES (LIdar Multispectral Earth Observation System) is the combination of an imaging 4 channel laser spectrometer (9.1 μm through 11.2 μm) and a multispectral scanner (11 channels between 0.42 μm and 13.0 μm). This instrument is the successor of the airborne 2-laser profiling instrument DIALEX (DIfferential Atmospheric Laser EXperiment, which was successfully flown over different test sites. The enhanced spectral resolution of the LIMES instrumentation will be used for applications and scientific objectives as there are: Geologic remote sensing (exploration), geologic -geographic remote sensing (mapping), discrimination and identification of surface materials (soils, rocks, vegetation), detection of vegetation anomalies and moisture detection.'
