Science Cafe: Laser-bots on the Beach

Infrared laser-scanning robots may sound like something straight out of Star Wars, but lucky top-notch scientists get to play with them too.  Come hear Professor Ivano Aiello of the Geological Oceanography Lab talk about how these cool tools can continuously monitor our shifting coastline of beaches and sea cliffs, capturing the effects of both pounding storms and sneaky erosion.  It’s free!
