Compact and highly sensitive fluorescence lidar for oceanographic measurements.

Abstract

A compact and highly sensitive helicopter-born fluorescence lidar is described. The single channel system is based on a high power, tunable laser. From an altitude of 70 m, selective detection of the tracer dye rhodamine B of less than 10(-10) g/cm(3) in natural waters is achieved.
