Two Generations of Windblown Sediments on Mars: This colorful scene is situated in the Noctis Labyrinthus region of Mars, perched high on the Tharsis rise in the upper reaches of the Valles Marineris canyon system.
The Laser Remote Sensing Laboratory develops laser remote sensing techniques and instruments for scientific measurements of the Earth and planets. Activities include developing and demonstrating new measurement techniques, conducting experiments, and developing ground-based, airborne, and spaceborne laser sensors (lidars). The Laboratory's work involves theoretical and experimental activities in applied physics, technology development, and instrument engineering. Laboratory personnel also plan and participate in scientific field campaigns, analyze laser-measurement and laser-sensor performance, acquire and interpret lidar data, and develop lasers, optics, and detector components.
