Killinger and A. Mooradian. As used in this book, remote sensing refers to the use of optical measurements made from aircraft or satellites to obtain information about the constituents of natural waters, the corresponding IOPs, or the bottom depth and type.

Oceanic remote sensing uses electromagnetic signals from the near UV (wavelengths from) to various radar bands (wavelengths from to). Optical Remote Sensing (ORS) technologies have been available since the late s.

In the early days of this technology, there were many who saw the potential of these new instruments for environmental measurements and how this technology could be integrated into emissions and ambient air monitoring for the measurement of Size: 3MB.

LiDAR is commonly used for making high-resolution maps and has applications in geodesy, geomatics, archaeology, geography, geology, geomorphology, seismology, forestry, atmospheric physics, laser guidance, airborne laser swath mapping, and laser altimetry.

It is also being used for control and navigation of some autonomous cars. The lidar method (li for light instead of ra for radio) is thus practically as old as the laser itself. In the beginning, measurements using light scattering of aerosols and dust particles were at the focus of attention, e.g., for investigating v- ibility or cloud heights.5/5(3).
