    • Airborne Laser Hydrography II 

      Philpot, William (2019)
      This book was written to document and share our updated knowledge of airborne lidar hydrography gained since Gary C. Guenther wrote the original seminal book Airborne Laser Hydrography - System Design and Performance Factors ...

    • 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 5: Basic Concepts in Data Processing 

      Feygels, Viktor; Kopilevich, Yuri; Kim, Minsu; Wang, Chi-Kuei (2019)
      This chapter details the various data processing steps used to retrieve useful data from the lidar waveform (other than depth of an individual pulse). The introductory section describes the sequence of coordinate transformations ...
    • 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 6: Performance Evaluation 

      Pe'eri, Shackak; Parrish, Christopher; Johnson, Nicholas; Macon, Christopher; White, Stephen (2019)
      In order to be able to provide a clean georeferenced point cloud for analysis and production, it is important to conduct a performance evaluation of an ALB system prior to conducting a survey. The term "performance evaluation" ...
    • Chapter 7: Applications, Ancillary Systems, and Fusion 

      Wozencraft, Jennifer; Eisemann, Eve; Reif, Molly; Dunkin, Lauren (2019)
      The number of applications for ALB data has grown exponentially since the first systems became operational in the late 1980's and early 1990's. In those early days, the primary application was nautical charting. Since then, ...
