REMOTE SENSING OF ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE AND SEA STATE USING LASER ALTIMETERS.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Recent progress in the development of multicolor laser altimeters for use in monitoring sea state and atmosphere pressure is reviewed. The sea-state results suggest that it may be possible to measure the crest-to-trough wave height and wave period as well as a significant wave height using a short pulse altimeter. This is not possible using microwave altimeters because their large beam widths obscure the crest and trough reflections. 9 refs.
