Chris Parrish has created a powerful demo of how bathymetric LiDAR works using a small UAV, laser and aquarium – ingenious. Chris works for NOAA – the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration just up the road at my alma mater the University of New Hampshire.
From Chris, ” FYI as a bit of background, the demo shown in the video was created for Know the Coast Day last weekend. My first ever attempt at explaining lidar to a K-12 audience.”
Nice job, it helped me to better understand how it really works.
