USGS Uses Ground Based LiDAR For Dam Removal Project

The river system shown in this video is downstream from the Elwha and Glines Canyon Dams, both of which are being removed in the largest dam removal project in U.S. history. For nearly a century, these dams have been preventing salmon and steelhead from accessing historic spawning habitat above the dams. The dams have also been blocking the natural supply of sediment to the lower river, and the nearby coastal beaches.

Spectacular imagery.

    Just wanted to let you know that these daily posts are fantastic. Keep up the great work! I was also hoping you could re-post the video, as the link seems to be down/broken.
