Lidar Monitoring of Phytoplankton and Organic Matter in the Inner Seas of Europe
A condensed review of applications of lidar-fluorosensor technique in the European inner seas is presented in the paper. The main objects of lidar monitoring were phytoplankton and organic matter ("yellow substance" and oil pollutions). The general principles of the oceanographic lidar technique and instrumentation are discussed, and results of profiling and mapping in the Baltic, Mediterranean and Black Seas (1980 - 1991) are analyzed. The advantages of lidars are defined by their capacity for active remote high-frequency sampling at space/time scales intermediate between satellite and shipboard observation.
