Abstract

Depth profiles and polarization characteristics of airborne lidar return signals have been calculated by the Monte Carlo method. We analyze some peculiarities of depth profiles of lidar return signals for a rough air–water interface. The distorting effect of the atmosphere on the lidar return signal structure is evaluated as a function of the geometry of the observations. Calculated results are compared with the data of airborne lidar measurements for λ = 0.53 μm.
