  • Airborne lidar catches algae

    ESRL’s Jim Churnside (Chemical Sciences Division) has used lidar instruments on airplanes to find schools of fish and squid. He’s used lidar—which bounces laser light off distant objects and captures the information-rich return signals—to find abandoned “ghost nets,” which can ensnare and kill ocean dwellers. Now, Churnside is using airborne lidar to find layers of phytoplankton—tiny plant-like ...
