    • Chapter 4: Basic Concepts and System Design 

      Feygels, Viktor; Kopilevich, Yuri; Kim, Minsu; LaRocque, Paul; Pe'eri, Shachak; Philpot, William (2019)
      All airborne lidar bathymeter (ALB) systems locate the bottom of a water body by tracking the progression of a short light pulse from its initial contact with the water surface through its interaction with the bottom. The ...
    • Chapter 3: Environmental Optical Properties 

      Pe'eri, Shachak; Feygels, Viktor; Tingaker, Torbjorn; Kopilevich, Yuri; Kim, Minsu; Philpot, William; Wang, Chi-Kuei (2019)
      When the lidar pulse is transmitted out of the ALB system, it interacts with various environmental regions from the time of transmission until the pulse is reflected from the seafloor and received back at the ALB detector. ...
    • Chapter 2: History 

      Wozencraft, Jennifer; LaRocque, Paul; Penley, Mark; Pfennigbauer, Martin (2019)
      The early years of laser hydrography have been traced by Guenther (1985). His review tracks the development of laser hydrography, now more commonly known as Airborne Laser Bathymetry (ALB), from the earliest theoretical ...
    • Chapter 1: Introduction 

      Lillycrop, W. Jeff (2019)
    • Appendix A: Standard Words, Phrases, Acronyms 

      Philpot, William (2019)
    • Appendix B: List of Symbols 

      Philpot, William (2019)
    • Reflections and the focusing effect from an ideal three-dimensional rough surface 

      Clavano, Wilhelmina R.; Philpot, William D. (2006-03-04)
      An analytical expression for higher-order reflectances from a shallow-water homogeneous ocean bottom modeled as an egg-carton surface is presented. Roughness of this ideal surface is expressed as the amplitude-to-length ...
    • The off-specular peak and polarisation effects of an undulating underwater suface 

      Clavano, Wilhelmina R.; Philpot, William D. (2006-03-03)
      Periodic undulations are used to describe underwater bottom roughness. An expression of the bi-directional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) is given that is dependent on the given roughness metric. Highlights include ...
    • Backscattering anisotropy near $180^{\circ}$: an indication of particle size and shape 

      Clavano, Wilhelmina R.; Boss, Emmanuel; Agrawal, Yogesh C. (2006-03-01)
      By modelling the single scattering of particles in the exact backward direction ($180^{\circ}$) and $5^{\circ}$ around, the field of view of an instrument measuring backscattering is simulated. Calculations of the scattering ...
