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.
