    Spatial characteristics of thin scattering layers observed by airborne LIDAR James H. Churnside NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory Broadway Boulder, CO [email protected] Abstract: Existing airborne LIDAR data were examined for the presence of thin . The LiDAR data was collected in one (25) missions, flown as close together as the weather permitted, to ensure consistent ground conditions across the project area. An initial quality control process was performed immediately on the LiDAR data to review the data coverage, airborne GPS data, and trajectory solution. / Nocturnal low-leveL-jet-dominated atmospheric boundary layer observed by a Doppler lidar over Oklahoma City during JU In: Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology. ; Vol. 46, No. pp. Cited by:

ATM History. NASA Wallops Airborne Lidar History Four Decades of Airborne Laser Remote Sensing The dedicated ATM lidar systems shared a common legacy with an earlier NASA airborne research lidar system known as the Airborne Oceanographic Lidar (AOL). The AOL system was designed by NASA and AVCO Everrett Research Laboratory in data and to ensure that the LiDAR data maintained its true geographic integrity.

The Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM), developed at NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., is a scanning laser altimeter that measures changes in ice surface elevation. It accomplishes this by reflecting lasers off the ice surface and measuring the time it takes light to return to the aircraft, usually flying between and While airborne LiDAR data are typically scanned at high horizontal resolution (i.e.
