Chapter 1 of the book "Airborne Laser Hydrography": "Introduction"
The early years of laser hydrography have been traced by Guenther (1985). His review tracks the development of laser hydrography, now more commonly known as Airborne Laser Bathymetry (ALB), from the earliest theoretical and experimental efforts in the mid-1960's dealing with in-water lasers and the first demonstration systems capable of detecting bottom returns through the development of the first operational systems. The history was later extended to 1990 in a paper by Sizgoric, Banic and...
