The state of the art of remote sensing of chlorophyll and oil pollution is examined in compressed form in this paper. An analysis is made of the laser location equation, difficulties are noted in obtaining quantitative information associated with the need for a priori assignment of a number of quantities in the laser location equation. A fluorescent laser locator, assembled on the basis of a domestic nitrogen laser at the 337 nm wavelength and a filter fluorescent spectrum analyzer, is described. Results of field testing of the lidar are presented. An interesting effect of an increase in the content of the light fraction of oil in the water of taiga rivers with the approach to oil and gas deposits is noted in the paper.
