Retrieval of the Backscatter Cross-section in Full-waveform Lidar Data Using B-splines

  title={Retrieval of the Backscatter Cross-section in Full-waveform Lidar Data Using B-splines},
  author={Andreas Roncat and G. Bergauer and Norbert Pfeifer},
Full-waveform lidar systems transmit short laser pulses towards the Earth’s surface and record the complete backscattered echo. This technique does not only allow for the three-dimensional reconstruction of the terrain, natural and man-made objects, but also for the derivation of (geo-)physical parameters such as the (differential) backscatter cross-section. To retrieve this quantity, deconvolution is necessary which is an ill-posed problem. This paper presents a novel technique for the… CONTINUE READING
