Information Specialist
Lynne Dingerson, NOAA
Equipment Used
This data was collected as part of an effort to map beach topography efficiently 
and cheaply.
Laser beach mapping uses a pulsed laser ranging system mounted
onboard an aircraft to measure ground elevation and coastal topography.
The laser emits laser beams at high frequency and is directed downward
at the earth's surface through a port opening in the bottom of the
aircraft's fuselage. The laser system records the time difference
between emission of the laser beam and the reception of the reflected
laser signal in the aircraft. The aircraft travels over the beach at
approximately 60 meters per second while surveying from the low water
line to the landward base of the sand dunes.
