fine tuning the lasers in the LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) caboose at Rothera Research Station

Dr Graeme Nott fine tuning the lasers in the LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) caboose at Rothera Research Station. The Iron Boltzmann Temperature Lidar uses lasers to collect data on atmospheric conditions. Scientists are using this data to better understand the dynamics of the atmosphere in the southern hemisphere.

Oceonographer

A 360deg scanning LIDAR being used during the JR240 ICEbell cruise. The LIDAR gives a very accurate image of the surface topography of the sea ice. Using multiple images of each site to create a 3 dimentional image/understanding of the sea ice surface. This work is essencial for interpreting satelite images which look at the vast areas of sea ice in the polar regions. The scientist seen in the image is Derya Akkaynak Yellin from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute WHOI / Photographer: Pete Bucktrout
