Soule using LIDAR system

Exploring a volcanic landscape

WHOI scientists set up an isolated research camp in the cold Dry Valleys in Antarctica in December 2007 on a month-long expedition to explore how the volcanic landscape formed and evolved. Volcanologist Adam Soule is shown using a device called LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), which beams a laser in a precise swath across the landscape. Reflections from every point the laser hits provide that point’s precise location. (Photo by Chris Linder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
