Sea Ice Melt Ponds: LiDAR Scanning Data

Summary

High resolution terrestrial Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scans were repeatedly collected using a Riegl LMS- Z420i scanner, from 5 different platforms affixed to the ice, two to the south of the field, and 3 along the transect line to its north. All data is registered together to produce a single point cloud of the surface using a number of reflectors situated around the site.
