Abstract
An Ocean Lidar system was developed for measuring the optical parameters of the sea water. In our system, the FOV of the receive is changed to obtain the different sea water optical parameters. The attenuation coefficient c equals 0.32 m-1, absorption a equals 0.07 m-1 with Sechhi Disc Depth (SDD) 13 m and c equals 0.31 m-1, a equals 0.06 m-1 with SDD equals 14 m are obtained in situ separately.
