Fish LiDAR

James Churnside is a researcher at NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He knows a tremendous amount about the use of LiDAR in the marine environment especially as it applies to locating fish.

Of special interest are the characteristics of light scattered from the ocean surface and near-surface layer and applications to remote sensing of phytoplankton, zooplankton, and epipelagic fish schools. He has worked on developing NOAA Fish Lidar for airborne surveys of fish and applying the lidar to various fisheries research problems.
