Short summary
To know how air pollution moves away from their sources, we need to know the height of the pollution. We use a laser instrument that detects particles of air pollution to precisely measure the height of the particles. Now we want to detect the layer where the pollution is. As the height of this layer changes with time it is difficult to automatically follow the correct layer. Pathfinder, which works like route planners that find the shortest way, improves this task.
