NASA scientist to speak about laser altimeters

November 14, 1995

D. Barry Coyle, a staff scientist at NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center, will present "Probing Volcanoes, Old Growth nTC Forests and Ice Sheets," a discussion and slide presentation on laser altimeters at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Decker Auditorium at Western Maryland College.

Recent developments in laser altimetry have made it a viable tool for acquiring precise topographic data where radar resolutions may not be enough, Dr. Coyle said.

His program will include slides from laser scanning flights over numerous sites of interest, including Mount St. Helens. Other recent scans include flights to the beaches on the East Coast to monitor erosion, the forests of the Pacific Northwest to check on new planting growth, and to chart ice sheet movement in Greenland.
