In April and May 2006, personnel from the Remote Sensing Division conducted joint measurements with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) personnel in testing the capabilities of a recently developed eye-safe lidar that tracks the movement of large aerosol structures (Fig. 5). The test was conducted at Point Sur, CA, a rugged coastal region 30 km south of Monterey, CA, noted for high winds. In coastal areas where winds and large shoaling waves make in situ measurements diffcult, scanning lidars represent a powerful tool for remotely measuring the winds and visualizing the airflow.
