|GPS||Post-processing of EAARL data is accomplished using a custom-built Airborne Lidar Processing System (ALPS) that combines laser return backscatter digitized at 1-ns intervals with aircraft positioning data derived from the IMU and GPS receivers||Navigation|
|Experimental Advanced Airborne Research LIDAR (EAARL)||The Experimental Advanced Airborne Research Lidar (EAARL) is an airborne lidar system that provides unique capabilities to survey coral reefs, nearshore benthic habitats, coastal vegetation, and sandy beaches (Wright and Brock, 2002). Operating in the blue-green portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the EAARL is specifically designed to measure submerged topography and adjacent coastal land elevations seamlessly in a single scan of transmitted laser pulses.||LIDAR||CRKR2014_EAARLB_z17_n88g12A_mosaic.zip (Lidar-derived submerged topography DEM mosaic for a portion of the submerged environs of Crocker Reef, Florida)|
