. Water LiDAR model was applied to simulate the returned waveforms of hydrographic LiDAR considering the effects of surface geometry and water optical properties. The signal to noise ratio(SNR) of bottom returned peak was considered as a criterion for performance of hydrographic LiDAR. The behavior of LiDAR was sensitive to water optical properties and it was insensitive to water surface roughness.
