Abstract

Remote sensing of the environment with laser scanners can provide highly accurate 3D spatial definition of surfaces; however difficulties arise if the target surface is water. A feasibility experiment and a field test of terrestrial laser scanning technology for water surface measurements has been carried out and the results are summarised in this paper. The paper finds that a disturbed water surface as found in the surf zone is a suitable target for laser scanning and a case for further research utilising laser technology for water surface measurement is presented.
