Note(s): This paper describes recent developments using a laser scanner to construct accurate range maps of marine snow aggregates at high resolution (200×200×200) and at range distances of less than 10 cm. The proposed method is also suitable (with modifications) for long range operation at up to 6 attenuation lengths. The system utilizes a triangulation sensing approach that is suited to low cost implementation through the use of a novel, patented method for obtaining position information. The approach is also compatible, with range gating methods for reduction of scattered light interference, at multiple attenuation lengths.
