Hydrographic Applications of Airborne Laser Spectroscopy
In the past decade remote sensing methods have become an important tool in oceanographic research. Utilization of optical radiometers onboard satellites for measurements of the colour of the sea has led to remarkable results over the open ocean, yielding global maps of chlorophyll content in the surface layer1,2. Problems arise in the interpretation of ocean colour data obtained over coastal waters due to the presence of other materials such as suspended mineral particles and dissolved organics (Gelbstoff) which also contribute to the radiometer signal.
