Active remote sensing with laser flurosensors enables the investigation of various oceanic parameters, such as dissolved organic matter (gelbstoff) or chlorophyll. Long-term surveillance of the North Sea with a laser fluorosensor mounted on a DO 228-212 aircraft, at a flight altitude of 300m, have shown the capability of two-dimensional mapping of coastal zones like the German Bight.
