Abstract:

The irradiance distribution is studied in the image plane of the lidar receiver for the laser sensing of the surface with a combined scattering phase function through the atmosphere. An expression is derived for the irradiance in the image plane for the sensing of the surface with the scattering phase function comprising the diffuse and quasispecular components through the optically dense aerosol atmosphere. It is shown that the distribution of the irradiance in the image plane can strongly depend on the relation between the diffuse and quasispecular components.
