A number of parameters were suggested for comparison potentialities of airborne and spaceborne laser sounding of atmosphere, hydrosphere, and underlying surface. These parameters were grouped in accordance with the properties that are determined by characteristics of the vehicle applied, lidar parameters, characteristics of both the lidar and the vehicle those simultaneously influence on monitoring parameters, the sounded object and environment, an information obtained and its preliminary processing, exploitation characteristics and cost of both the lidar and the vehicle. On the base of these parameters the qualitative comparative analysis has been carried out for these two kinds of laser sounding. Their merits and demerits have been considered having in mind that both sounding technologies correlate well.
