NASA sure loves sending LiDAR sensors up into Earth’s orbit. Their latest spaceborne sensor, (yes, “spaceborne”) which will be loaded onto the International Space Station, is the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) LiDAR. The GEDI, which NASA touts as the first instrument to “systematically probe the depths of the forest from space” will gather 3D measurements of Earth’s forests to give scientists “critical data needed to mitigate the effects of climate change.”
