Abstract

In a joint European initiative, a number of experienced scientists in Lidar technology, laser spectroscopy, plant physiology and radiative transfer modelling defined the EUREKA project LASFLEUR. The main objectives of the LASFLEUR project were: (i) to investigate the spectral resolved laser-induced fluorescence signature of different plants; (ii) to investigate the time resolved laser-induced fluorescence signature of different plants; (iii) to develop radiative transfer models; (iv) to develop and test far-field fluorescence Lidar systems; (v) to design an airborne fluorescence Lidar for vegetation monitoring. A detailed summary of the individual and collective work is presented.
