The AA. present a novel application of the Kinect, an input device designed for the Microsoft Xbox 360 video game system. The device can be used by Earth scientists as a low-cost, high-resolution, short range 3D/4D camera imaging system producing data similar to a terrestrial light detection and ranging (LiDAR) sensor. The AA. describe the hardware and software interface and discuss the quality of the data collected by the instrument and its limitations. They then illustrate data collection and basic data analysis routines in three experiments designed to demonstrate the breadth and utility of this new sensor in domains of glaciology, stream bathymetry, and geomorphology
