A complex Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) instrument in seen in operation at Davis station in Antarctica with the glow of the Aurora Australis also in the sky, in this undated photo supplied by the Australian Antarctic Division. Physicists from the division and the University of Adelaide have developed the LIDAR to study the middle atmosphere above Davis Station. The LIDAR obtains information by sending pulses of green laser light into the sky and measuring the extremely small spectral changes that take place when the light is scattered by atmospheric gases and aerosols. The information collected will be used to assess long-term climate trends and to better understand atmospheric motions. REUTERS/Andrew Dowdy-Australian Antarctic Division
