Having recently launched two new instruments, a new era of spaceborne laser altimetry will deliver surface elevation and structure observations to advance our knowledge of land and sea ice coverage, surface water hydrology, and more. Scott B. Luthcke will discuss the Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter (ATLAS) aboard ICESat-2 and the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) instrument on the International Space Station, their performance thus far, and their dependence on satellite geodesy.
