  • Description: Field tests using a pulsed nitrogen/neon dye laser to measure water depths in shallow waters have been completed. These measurements, which were conducted from fishing piers, boats and airplanes were made for the purpose of verifying the empirical model which was developed during the laboratory phase of this program. In nearly all cases, good correlation was found to exist between these field measurements and the empirical model. A summary of the salient laser and system parameters for an airborne laser bathymetry system is included. Laboratory measurements were conducted on laser induced dye fluorescence. The results of these experiments showed that both the depth of a dye cloud (composed of two or more dyes) and its temperature could be determined using ratio detection techniques.
