Researches on the application of fluorescence LIDARs to the remote-sensing of land and sea surfaces were carried out at IROE and IEQ of the National Research Council (CNR) during last years. The researches involved the use of laboratory and computer simulations and they were mainly devoted to the selection of laser sources, to the detection and characterization of oil spills, and to the analysis of vegetation stresses. As a result a prototype of fluorescence LIDAR was designed and built with a particular attention to the problems connected with the operation on board of trucks, ships, and aircrafts. The system is therefore a rugged, light-weight, small-dimension one, having a low power consumption. The LIDAR was called F-LIDAR IROE-2. It is able to record high-resolution fluorescence spectra and most of the data-processing can be done on board of the moving platform.
