Lidar sensing has been found to be a useful method of monitoring the dynamics and mass balance of glaciers, ice caps, and ice sheets. However, it is also known that ice surfaces can have complex 3-dimensional structure, which can challenge their accurate retrieval with lidar sensing. In support of future lidar sensing satellite missions, such as the(More)
This work describes a visualization tool and sensor testbed that can be used for assessing the performance of both instruments and human observers in support of port and harbor security. Simulation and modeling of littoral environments must take into account the complex interplay of incident light distributions, spatially correlated boundary interfaces,(More)
To advance the science of lidar sensing of complex ice and snow surfaces as well as in support of the upcoming ICESat-2 mission, this paper establishes a framework to theoretically study a spaceborne micropulselidar returns from snow and ice surfaces. First, the anticipated lidar return characteristics for a sloped non-penetrating surface is studied when(More)
