Similar to LLS, but surveyed from an aircraft, a laser line is scanned throughout the landscape and the ocean. Depending on the laser wavelength, LiDAR is capable of recovering both the ocean surface and the sea bottom.

Yes, lidar can penetrate water but can be quite a challenge. Mainly due to various limitations such as refraction and light absorption. Greenlight (infrared wavelength
infrared wavelength
Infrared (IR), sometimes called infrared light, is electromagnetic radiation (EMR) with wavelengths longer than those of visible light. It is therefore invisible to the human eye.
