28 May 1999 Lidar sensing of the North Sea near Great Britain

The results of experiment on airborne laser sounding of coastal sea waters about Northern Scotland are described. The aircraft- laboratory of Institute of Atmospheric optics with Makrel-2 lidar was used. As a rule, the flights were carried out at height 300 M above water with average speed of 320 km/h. The pulse repetition rate of laser shots changed from 5 up to 25 Hz. The total length of flight lines above water surface has made about 8000 km. The processing of signals was made by a method of logarithmic derivative with statistical processing. The large attention was given to neutralization of influence of afterpulses, arising in photomultipliers, and especially strongly interfering to sounding of water.
