A prototype airborne laser fluorosensor for monitoring surface water chlorophyll 'a' has been tested over Lake Mead, Nevada. Trends in the remotely sensed data are in close correspondence with ground truth data. It is suggested that system performance can be improved by concurrently gauging the water optical attenuation coefficient and by implementing changes to the established procedure for performing chlorophyll 'a' analyses on ground truth samples.
