Abstract:

This grant provided funds to upgrade the University of Wisconsin Volume Imaging Lidar. A new computer system was purchased to increase data acquisition and data processing rates. Lidar data algorithms execute 20 to 50 times faster on the new IBM RS6000 model 550 than on the old Digital Equipment Corp. VAX 750. The new computer has allowed us to begin systematically processing all of the 20 Gbyte data set acquired in the 1989 FIFE program. This report describes applications of the new computer.
