The University of Iowa LiDAR research group focuses on many different aspects (theoretical and experimental) of atmospheric and terrestrial phenomena, spanning from the Earth’s surface to the top of the atmospheric boundary layer. This interdisciplinary group within the University of Iowa typically spends the summer collecting LiDAR data throughout the United States, and winters analyzing data and writing proposals.
IIHR Research Engineer William Eichinger leads Team LiDAR, which includes personnel from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering, and the Department of Physics. The team collaborates with many scientific and educational institutions, including the USDA, Ohio State University, NASA, and the National Central University (Taiwan).
