GEDI scientists share space laser excitement

Dr. Goetz shares his excitement about GEDI and the research it will inspire in a new interview with NASA:

After many years of preparation – over a decade – we are on the cusp of having a space-borne lidar instrument that is designed for land research and applications …

When GEDI achieves orbit and the data from the instrument reach the science community, I think we will see a revolution in research and applications related to ecosystem dynamics, including forestry, biodiversity and hydrology …

GEDI is long overdue. I can hardly wait to see what we can do with the unique data it will provide.  At long last we will have access to the 3rd dimension of global forests!
