LIDAR works in much the same way as Dopper radar or sonar, but uses lasers instead. This gives LIDAR much more precision and accuracy in detecting distance. This is a high resolution LIDAR image of South Moloka'i Reef. This image was taken as part of an effort to assess the extent of damage in the reef. The green semi-rectangular area on the image is a hole in the reef.
