Nanosecond time resolution : Technical implementation and usefulness
This paper reports on laboratory LIDAR measurements with a high temporal resolution performed on samples of crude oils and on an artificial water column. It shows how this technique can help in identifying the oil type and assesses its possibilities in measuring the water attenuation characteristics. It then describes a flight instrument, the "Time Resolved LIDAR Fluorosensor" (TRLF) designed to implement this type of measurements from an aircraft. The basic capability of the TRLF is to perform spectro-temporal measurements of the LIDAR signals with a time resolution of 1 ns and spectral resolution of 15 nm (range from 350 to 710 nm).
