A description of the general principles being developed at Moscow University for laser diagnostic methods of monitoring water ecosystems is presented in the present paper. A brief historical survey of investigations in this field is provided with the formulation of the problems which should be solved. The latest results obtained in Moscow University are summarized. These results are discussed in a series of papers presented in these proceedings and reported at several recent international conferences.
