Research Interests

Dr. Kane works in the field of Optical Remote Sensing, with an emphasis on Laser Radar (or Lidar). His emphasis on optical propagation has also instigated current efforts in free-space optical communication as well as imaging. In addition to the design, development, and deployment of such instrumentation, he has current research interests in modeling of ionospheric, atmospheric, and oceanic dynamics and chemical processes.
