Center for Earth and Planetary Studies geologist, Gareth Morgan, recently attended a course at MIT where he learned to build his own radar equipement. Here he is on the left holding his radar--notice the two paint cans that serve as the transmitting and receiving antennas--and on the right a close up of the radar providing output on his laptop.
