Abstract

Laser scanning technology is a form of remote sensing which has shown, in feasibility studies, that a water
surface can be measured rapidly and accurately without in-situ sensors. The adoption of a terrestrial laser
scanner (TLS) for wave measurements is an innovative use of state-of-the-art technology usually employed
for surveying and high precision surface modelling. An experimental setup for the measurement of waves in
a wave flume is detailed and the results of remote sensing of wave parameters are described. The
experiment conducted involves a unique method for measuring wave parameters such as wave height, wave
period and wavelength. The experiments function as a source of reliable laboratory controlled data, however
it also provides a platform for the development of laser scanning technology for field measurements.
