- Except for very few, rather special publications, the last comprehensive books on lidar appeared in 1983 and 1984.
Progress in lidar theory, development and applications that occurred in the twenty years since has been enormous. The present book gives a comprehensive and yet self-contained review of this progress, starting at the point where the previous literature ends.
Written by leading experts in optical radar, or lidar, this book brings all the recent practices up-to-date. With a Foreword by one of the founding fathers in the area. Its broad cross-disciplinary scope should appeal to scientists ranging from the view of optical sciences to environmental engineers. Optical remote sensing has matured to become a lead method for cross-disciplinary research. This new multi-authored book reviews the state-of-the-art in a readable monograph.
