B-LiDAR on the San Andreas - better than B4

Our team has just returned from successful and exciting field work, completing initial field tests of a prototype balloon-mounted LiDAR system along the San Andreas fault in the Carrizo Plain, with PI's Ben Brooks from Univ. of Hawai'i and Craig Glennie from the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) at Univ. of Houston and the expert team including James Foster, Todd Ericksen and John Avery (Univ. of Hawai'i) and Darren Hauser (Univ. of Houston). Good news - the system works, the data are great! Watch Ben's 'Ignite UNAVCO' 5-minute talk, "The Balloon and the Lidar."
