Optical Methods for Water Pollution Monitoring
An innovative optical method for remote monitoring of water pollution was developed and tested in AMPERA ERA-NET Programme, project DEOSOM. The method is based on remote detection of laser-induced fluorescent radiation (LIF LIDAR). In the project, compact and light LIF LIDAR systems were developed, which can be operated by relatively unskilled personnel and used for early air- or shipborne pollution detection and evaluation, specifically for oil spill detection. The systems are provided with direct georeferencing, for exact localization of the oil spills, and artificial intelligence, for their automatic characterization. The paper presents the principles of the method and the results of tests carried out in the field and laboratory conditions
