The AA. evaluate here the use of high-resolution light detection and ranging altimetry (LiDAR) data in fluvial studies. First, they give an overview of the operation principles of different LiDAR systems. Second, they describe the steps needed to produce a DTM from LiDAR point elevation data and discuss the effects of floodplain land cover and surface sediment characteristics on the accuracy of LiDAR data. Third, they present a review of LiDAR applications in fluvial studies. Finally, they conclude with the state of the laser scanning applications (airborne laser scanning, terrestrial laser scanning or mobile laser scanning including boat- and cart-based mobile mapping systems) in fluvial studies and some potential future developments
