A number of parameters were suggested for comparing the potentialities of airborne and spaceborne lidar monitoring of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and underlying surface. These parameters were grouped in accordance with the properties that are determined by: the characteristics of the carrier platform used; the lidar parameters; the characteristics of both lidar and carrier that simultaneously influence the monitoring parameters; the environment and background; the monitoring object; the information obtained and its preliminary processing; the operating characteristics and the cost of both the lidar and the carrier. On the basis of these parameters the qualitative comparative analysis of these two types of monitoring was carried out. Their merits and demerits were considered having in mind that both monitoring technologies correlate well.
