Laser remote sensing of coastal and terrestrial pollution by FLS-lidar
Sergey Babichenko, Alex Dudelzak and Larisa Poryvkina

The paper presents recent results of field experiments with airborne fluorescent lidar FLS-A based on excimer laser and multichannel detector. Helicopter installation was used to monitor water and land areas of oil transportation and storage. Techniques for real-time data acquisition and processing are described based on compiled and systematized library of LIF spectra of various underlying surfaces. The field tests have proved the ability of FLS-A lidar to distinguish the fluorescence of minor oil pollution on different spectral backgrounds usually recorded in airborne measurements. Further lidar developments are discussed.
